Radjendre is 57 years old and lives with his wife and a school-going child. His three elder children already left home and are well settled.

Radjendre works as a watchman at night, and during the day, he works for rice farmers with his tractor, which he bought with a loan from Seva MFI. Recently he repaid this loan back to Seva. Now, he decided to cultivate rice as well. For that he needs a loan of 8,000 SRD [Surinam dollars] to purchase fertilizers and pesticides. He hopes to save enough to build his own house and live a decent life with his wife and child.

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.
