but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy cereals from local farmers to sell in her local market.


Mary's story

Mary is a beautiful middle-aged mother with a great deal of knowledge and skills in farming. On her farm, she keeps cows and has a small orchard. She also has access to many sellers throughout the food business.

To earn additional income, Mary makes a commission on sales for which she helps to arrange the logistics of getting farm produce from local farmers to their buyers. She has been in this profession for more than six years. Mary takes great pride in her work. She is organized and efficient.

Given that Mary can organize a sale more easily than regular farmers can, she fancies dealing with larger volumes of produce. She is seeking a loan to buy cereals from local farmers at fair prices, and to use her better understanding of the market conditions and prices to sell at a profit.

Your loan will help her clients to focus on production rather than sales, and it will help her family to earn a better income to uplift their livelihood. You can support her dream by giving Mary a loan! She thanks her lenders profusely in advance.
