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

A loan helped to buy more coffee for trading to raise school fees for his children.

Jamiiru's story

Jamiiru is married and has children who go to school. He lives in a rural setting with his family. He deals in coffee trading and supplements his family income with food crop farming. He works all the days of the week to maximize profits.

He started his business with the aim of getting money to increase family income. He is acquiring this loan in order to buy more stock of coffee for trade. His clients are traders from the capital city.

His dream is to enlarge his business, but his biggest challenge is a lack of enough capital. Jamiiru is a hardworking man.
