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

A loan helped to invest in manure to better his yields.

Alex's story

Alex (appearing with his wife) is a married man with four children. His main activity is agriculture, where he grows maize. He says this business would be doing well but his main challenge has been limited working capital to invest in manure to better his yields. He thinks this loan will take him a long way in expanding his farming activities, thus increasing production.

Away from that, he trades produce and earns extra income to sustain himself and his family. He thanks the lenders for the support and looks forward to the same in the near future.
