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

A loan helped to buy 7 boxes of notebooks, 100 book covers, 100 boxes of pens, and binders.

Saholinirina's story

Saholinirina is 39 years old. She's married to a mason, and they have 2 children who are both in school.

For work, Saholinirina has been selling discount items and beauty products for 6 years. Her business has a fixed location and attracts many customers. Since it's the back-to-school season, Saholinirina is selling school supplies. She doesn't have the capital she needs, so she is requesting this loan to buy 7 boxes of notebooks, 100 book covers, and 100 boxes of pens.

Her dream is to become a wholesaler in her field.
