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

A loan helped to help her add stock of more fish for selling.

Florence's story

Florence is a humble single mother of four strong children. To support her family, she runs a business selling fish for a living. She has done so for some time and has enjoyed the business ever since and is seeking to expand her business. She is humbly requesting a loan that will enable her to add stock of more fish to boost her business. This will improve her sales and enable her to pay back her loan. Through her business, she has permanently employed two people who also get their livelihoods from there. Florence is a good steward when it comes to faithfully paying back her loans and was able to successful boost her sales with her last loan. She is committed to paying back her loan with the help of the profits she makes. Her dream is to invest in a parcel of land and support her kids' dreams.
