Cynthia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fruits and vegetables for her grocery store and help a single mother support her only child.

Cynthia's story

Wonderful people,

Cynthia is a single woman who carries all of the responsibilities of parenting on her shoulders. She is an honest mother of one child and sacrifices her time and effort to ensure that her child never lacks anything.

Cynthia is requesting this loan to buy fruits and vegetables for her grocery business. She will use her market knowledge to fix a good market price for her products. The additional profits she will earn will be saved for the education of her child and used for loan repayment.

Cynthia will also help farmers in her place of residence since she will create a good market for their commodities. Employment will therefore be created in this village. This can only come true if you extend your good will to her.

Kindly lend to this industrious woman today!
