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

A loan helped to help her add stock of more maize for selling.

Roselyne's story

Roselyne is a humble widow who is blessed with one child. She runs a cereals business to help her bring up her family. Her major products include maize and beans which are staple crops in the country.

The major reason why she loves this jobs is something that is close to her heart and it is because she grew up watching her parents do the same for a living to bring her and her siblings up. Because of this she grew to learn and love the business from the bottom of her heart. And it is what she does now for a living to take care of her own family.

She is humbly requesting for a loan that will enable her to add stock of more cereals to boost her business. She has promised to use her profits to pay back her loan. Her dream is to grow her business to be able to provide for her child the best and this loan will help her better her life.
