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

A loan helped to help her support her children through school and also to stock her general store to boost her business.

Caroline's story

Caroline is 41 years old. She is happily married and is blessed with 5 children. Her husband is a teacher while she runs a general store to help her bring up her family. She enjoys the business she runs because it enables her to meet her family's needs.

Caroline is humbly requesting for a loan that will enable her to pay her children's school fees and add stock to her business. She has promised to pay back her loan with the help of the profits she makes from her business. Her dream is to provide a good education for her children.
