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

A loan helped to buy more farm inputs, such as seeds and fertilizers, to boost her farm's production and to add more products to her general store.

Nancy's story

Nancy is 51 years old. She is blessed with 4 children and is a humble widow who supports her family both emotionally and financially. She has brought up her children through her farm and grocery business and loves her job very much because it has sustained them all these years.

Nancy is focused and motivated to continue growing her business and is humbly requesting a loan that will enable her to buy more farm inputs to boost her farm's production and more products to boost her general store. With her last loan, she purchased her cow, which boosted her farm, and she was able to promptly pay it back. She has promised to faithfully pay this loan as well with the help of the profits she makes. Her dreams are to buy more cows to help her increase her milk production and also to continue supporting her children.
