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


A loan helped to buy spare parts for machinery and pay for the maintenance of his landscaping equipment.


Edwar Yesid's story

Edwar is 35 years old, and works tirelessly to take care of his family. He's an exemplary father and proud of his 6-year-old daughter.

He is a landscaper. He's been running his landscaping business since 2014. He started it with the vision and desire to have a better life, since one salary wasn't enough to cover the costs of a household.

Edwar is working hard towards growing his business' finances and he needs capital to boost some projects he has in mind. To do this, he is requesting a loan to buy spare parts for machinery and pay for the maintenance of his landscaping equipment.

His dream is to buy a house to share with his family, generate work and provide a lifestyle that's sustainable in the future.
