Teopista's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy another machine for milling rice.
Teopista is aged fifty, and is a hard working lady who is charged with the responsibility of taking care of one child. She is involved in the milling of maize, cassava and rice. She hopes to grow and expand her business more, only to be limited by in adequate capital. She is requesting for a loan facility to buy a new maize milling machine. Having discovered that her customers always want their goods to be milled she usually gets a lot of bookings but the milling machines she has are not enough; hence wanting an additional machine so as to satisfy her customers' demands.
