Oemesh is 28 years old, and since an early age, he has been a rice grower. He was married two years ago and is supporting his wife who is studying to be a teacher.

He inherited a piece of land from his in-laws on which he has since been working and plans to finish building his own house this year. He works seriously and hard to pay for study and construction costs.

With the support of Seva MFI in 2009, Oemesh expanded his rice areas. All his loans are repaid on time, and now Oemesh asks Seva MFI for a new loan of SRD 12,000 to expand his rice production.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Seva's effort to reach marginalized rice farmers who are excluded from Suriname's traditional banking system. This type of loan is designed to help agricultural entrepreneurs become self sustainable. This is especially important in Suriname, where microfinance is limited. These loans provide farmers with the opportunity to thrive in a country where rural and agricultural businesses are considered to be too risky for commercial loans.
