Charity's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy highly demanded cereals such as cow peas, lentils, rice and maize to resell and help a single mother to secure the lives of her school-going children.

Charity's story

Each early morning, when the birds and crickets are chanting their sweet melodies to give way to the new sun, Charity jumps out of bed and prepares for a busy day. She prepares her children for school and later moves to her farm. This is the daily life of Charity, a single mother who works tirelessly to steward her family and to establish a successful agribusiness farm.

Charity practices animal (cows and sheep) and crop farming (horticulture). Waste from her animals is usually composted and used to increase soil fertility in her farm. Thanks to her perseverance, her children can have at least two meals in a single day.

Charity is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy different varieties of cereals, such as lentils, cow peas, rice, wheat, barley and millet to sell in the local market. The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high and she plans to take advantage of that.

Income generated from this venture will help a single woman generate more profits to educate her children. Because of the good relationship Charity has with her neighbors, she plans to increase her market by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets. You can help this single mother achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring big profits.
