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

A loan helped to buy fabrics and thread to make dresses for sale.

Susan's story

Susan is 46 years old. She is widowed and blessed with three children. Her business is dressmaking, which she has practiced for 25 years.

This is her third loan, which she will use to buy fabrics and thread to make dresses for sale. She will use the profits from the expanded business to meet her family's basic needs and provide education for her children.

Her hopes and dreams are to be financially stable and live a better life.
