Fridah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy different varieties of cereals, such as lentils, sorghum, cow peas, wheat, barley, and millet, to sell in the local market to earn additional profits.
Fridah is very positive in her approach to her farm decisions. She takes all responsibilities on her farm to heart and works towards her goals. She is determined to succeed and give her family a better lifestyle. Fridah earns income through selling milk, maize, and vegetables. She has been in this business for the last 13 years. She also loves and practices poultry farming, and she feels motivated and accomplished when she earns income through selling eggs, chicks, and poultry meat. She also engages in a small business which is aimed at supplementing her income (pictured in her clothes selling business). Although she loves farming, the little profit she has been getting is not enough to save for her children’s education. Fridah has always wanted to start a cereal business in her local market. She is requesting a loan to buy cereals. She intends to buy different varieties of cereals such as lentils, sorghum, cow peas, wheat, barley, and millet to sell in the local market. In Chuka, the cereal business is one of the most profit-generating businesses, since the demand for cereals is always on the rise. Because of the good relationship she has with her neighbors, Fridah plans to increase her market by proper marketing in her own village. You can help this woman achieve her dreams with this loan, which will surely bring enormous changes in her life.
