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


A loan helped to buy 5 bags of fertilizer, one box of tomato seeds, 10 boxes of pesticides, and other materials.


Hamado's story

Hamado is the father of 7 children, 6 of whom go to school. He is responsible for two people. He works as a vegetable farmer and has been growing off-season crops for 19 years in an outlying area. Hamado is on his fourth loan cycle with the MFI Yikri. He is seeking this loan to buy 5 bags of fertilizer, one box of tomato seeds, 10 boxes of pesticides, and other materials with the goal of boosting his crop yield and meeting his customers' demands on time. With the proceeds from this financing, he plans to expand his off-season crop growing and save up to pay for more of his children's schooling next year.
