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

A loan helped to help buy more fruits to boost her sales.

Jane's story

Jane is happily married and lives with her family in Nyeri where she also has her business. She sells fruits and vegetables for a living to help her bring up her family and she enjoys the profits she makes on a daily basis. Her business has been growing steadily and the major challenge she faces is lack of enough capital to adequately support her family.

Through her business she has also contributed a great deal to supporting local farmers and suppliers. Jane has been of good credit character in all of her loans that she has taken and she is confident that she will be able to pay back the loan she is requesting from lenders. Jane plans to add stock of more fruits and vegetables to boost her business and will pay back her loan with the help of the profits she makes. Her dream is to own a big grocery store in the future.
