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

A loan helped increase her business capacity (selling bazin, a traditional African fabric) in order to provide for her family's needs.

Morenga Group's story

Fati is 28 years old, married, and the mother of two children. She sells clothing (made of bazin, a traditional African fabric) and has been doing so for five years. She needs a loan to purchase bazin in bulk for resale. Her stand in the market is well-situated, and she is reputed for her long-standing experience. Along with her experience, she is also respectful and welcoming towards her customers. On top of this, the bazin she sells is of a good quality and readily available, all of which contributes to her well-functioning business. After her sales, she will have a profit allowing her to save up funds, take care of her family's needs, and continue to run her business. She is on her first ACFIME loan and she is determined to respect the payment due dates.
