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


A loan helped to buy fertilizers for his coffee farm to boost crop production.


Osbert's story

Osbert is married with four children; two attend school. Farming has been his main source of income for 21 years. He grows bananas, coffee and pineapples. Osbert engages his children in the farming activities because he wants to equip them with business skills.

He used the previous loan to buy coffee seedlings for planting, however, he needs another loan to buy fertilizers to boost crop production. Osbert is positive that, with a bigger coffee farm, his yields will increase, thereby bringing in more returns. He appreciates the support that will transform his family economically.
