Apollinaire's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase a machine to produce organic fertilizer.
Apollinaire lives in Northern Rwanda, on the hills just below Volcanoes National Park. High in the hills the soil is rich, a prime location for growing potatoes. In fact, Apollinaire is one of the country's best potato farmers, building one of the country's first greenhouses to grow potato plant seedlings. Now, Apollinaire wants to add a product line to his existing business. He wants to produce organic fertilizer, a needed product by many of the farmers and cooperatives in his region. Apollinaire will use some of the fertilizer for his own crops and will sell the surplus. With this support, Apollinaire will grow his current team of 3 people and hire 4 more permanent employees to work on fertilizer production.
