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

A loan helped to pay for a mill for maize.

Naphitale's story

Naphitale is a 64-year-old businessman who owns a farm in the Katete district of Eastern Province in Zambia. Naphitale lives with eight of his family members.

Naphitale has been farming for over five years and now wishes to venture into milling maize. Naphitale is asking for a loan to obtain a hammer mill, a type of mill for maize. This mill will enable Naphitale to contribute to the national food basket.

Rent-To-Own will deliver the hammer mill to Naphitale's farm. Rent-to-Own will also ensure that Naphitale is trained on how to properly use and maintain the hammer mill so that it may continue to work for him over a long period of time.
