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

A loan helped to buy seeds and equipment for her farming business.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 42 years old, married and mother of 4 children. She has a farming business that she started in 2002. Her husband is doing farming too. Rosa grows vegetables to sell at a local market and generate income to support her family. Running her farming business has made Rosa independent because she can be responsible for herself and also provide a better life for her family.

She would like a loan of $1,500 from Kaebauk Investimentu no Finansas to help grow her farming business. She plans to use this loan to buy seeds and equipment for her farm.

Rosa hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.She is happy with this loan because it will improve her condition in the future. It is a second loan and the first loan is already paid.
