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

A loan helped to purchase agricultural inputs and prepare her field.

Ben Kadi Koflande Group's story

[Ben Kadi Koflande Group] is made up of 10 members, 4 women and 6 men, led by a representative named Biba.

Biba is 38 years old, married, and the mother of five children. She has been a cashew nut farmer for 15 years. She is requesting this loan to purchase agricultural inputs and pay for labor costs to weed, clean, plant, and maintain her field.

[Cashew nut farming] is Biba's primary source of income. Her field is very far away from traditional banks, but ACFIME comes to her area to make loans and collect repayments, which gives her strength and helps her business run well.

After the harvest, Biba sells her cashew nut [harvest] at a very reasonable price. Once her harvest has been sold, Biba will have a profit that will allow her to meet her family's needs and continue her business. She is on her first loan with ACFIME and will meet the repayment date.
