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

A loan helped to buy more varieties of local vegetables/fruits/root crops and also add cold fruit juice to her stall.

Simran's story

Simran (38) is a market vendor, selling fruits and vegetables at the highway.

Having to sit along the highway and sell, she gives the opportunity to many people who do not have the time to go to the market, hence many stop by to buy her local produce.

Now Simran wishes for a loan to be able to expand her market and also sell more varieties of fruits and vegetables to produce satisfactory results to her customers and meet their expectation. In addition to this, she also wishes to sell cold fruit juice.

She is happy about her progress and is adamant about the future of her vending business.
