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

A loan helped to purchase another handcart.

William's story

This marks William's third borrowing after successfully repaying his previous loans. He is grateful for VisionFund loans for helping him to expand his business. He now owns two handcarts which are giving him a good income, as well as his wife's grocery. He has requested more money to repair his handcarts and purchase new tires, and hopes to continue earning more money from them. His hope and dreams for the future are to buy a pickup for the business.
