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

A loan helped to buy maize in bulk.

Yamulanayi Group's story

Alinafe is 34 years old and married. She is a mother of three children and cares for one relative as well. Her husband runs a small business.

Alinafe sells maize. With her portion of the loan, she would like to buy maize in bulk and boost her business. The proceeds from the business will enable her to pay for household needs. She started the business to support her husband in providing for their family. One family member works with her in the business.

Alinafe's goal is to construct houses to lease and to work with increased capital to order maize in large quantities in the future.
