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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs and to pay to maintain her orchard.

Pengde Wende Group's story

This group is made up of 11 members and are represented by their leader Ramata. Ramata is 46 years old, married, and has seven children. She has farmed cashews for 20 years. She wants a loan to buy farm inputs and to pay to plow, weed, clean, prune, and clear her field. Farming is her primary source of income.

Ramata lives far from the ACFIME offices, so they come to her to disburse her loan and to take repayments. This allows her to continue working.

After the harvest, she sells her cashews at an affordable price. Profits allow her to cover her family's needs and to continue farming.

This is Ramata's first loan with ACFIME, and she will work to respect the repayment date.
