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

A loan helped to buy the necessary inputs to grow green beans.

Gervais's story

Gervais is still working in agriculture. He has now planned to start cultivating green beans. He is not financially independent yet and still needs a loan, he is therefore asking for the lenders' help.

This loan will help him to buy crops and fertiliser. He sells his produce to traders. He hopes to make enough profits to increase his savings and use those as financial capital in the future.
