Doreen's story

Doreen, who is 27 years old, is a charismatic young woman and a strong example of hard work. Doreen is a farmer and salesperson who has access to many sellers throughout the food business. On her farm she keeps animals and has a small cash crop garden and trees. To earn additional income, Doreen makes a commission on sales for which she helps arrange the logistics of getting farm produce from local farmers to their buyers. She has been doing this business for over a decade. She continually makes an effort to build strong relationships because reputation is everything in her line of work. Given that Doreen can arrange a sale more easily than regular farmers, she prefers to deal with larger volumes of produce. She is seeking a loan to buy more cereal produce from local farmers at fair prices and use her better understanding of the market conditions and prices to sell it at a profit. Your loan will help Doreen’s clients to focus on production rather than sales, and it will help her family to earn a better income to increase their livelihood. Support her dream by giving Doreen a loan!
