Eunice's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a quality-breed dairy cow that will help satisfy the demand for milk in her area, produce manure for her farm, and improve her standard of living.

Eunice's story

Eunice, a mother of three children, takes her work on the farm seriously and ensures that she reaps the best out of every opportunity that comes her way. Farming is her only income source. Though she faces challenges in her business, she is resilient and believes in long-term rewards.

Her core focus is on the health of her animals and crops, since they provide a daily living for her family. She carries out her responsibilities well and is able to give her family the best a caring mother is able to provide. Eunice has been in this business for the past ten years and has never thought of going back.

Through farming, she has made significant improvements to the welfare of her family. Eunice detests living in poverty and has a plan to improve her standard of living.

For this reason, she is seeking a loan to purchase a quality-breed dairy cow that will help in producing milk as well as manure to be used on her farm. Milk from the cow will be sold to the local market, which will mean improved cash flow.

Through improved cash flow, profits will be high, and she can comfortably take care of her family and send her kids to school. Through your loan, Eunice will be empowered economically.
