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

A loan helped to refill her shelves with food, confectioneries, and household items.

Saini's story

As the operator of a general store, Saini knows she needs to maintain a good range of items on offer. But she has run down her stock and it’s now time to refill the shelves. So she has requested a loan to buy replacement supplies. The new lines should quickly boost sales, and higher turnover and profit will increase her income. Although she makes only a dollar or two a day from her store, it means she can meet the school costs of her children.
