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

A loan helped to buy more vegetables to boost her business.

Silva's story

Silva is happily married and has been blessed with two children who depend on her and her husband. She runs a grocery business selling fresh vegetables and fruits to her customers to sustain her family. Her challenge has been lack of capital to stock her business which has led it to suffer as she has not been able to meet her demand.

Silva believes that if she is assisted with this loan she will be able to boost her business and increase her revenue through which she will be able to pay back her loan.

Her dream is to expand her business and create employment for others and lift her family's living standard.
