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


A loan helped to buy eight boxes of insecticides, seven sacks of chemical fertiliser, and five cans of petrol, and to save to pay for his children's education.


Sammuel's story

Sammuel is a married man and father of two children, one of whom goes to school. He is a farmer and has been doing off-season cultivation for more than three years in a peripheral district.

He is on his second loan cycle with YIKRI and is seeking a new loan to buy eight boxes of insecticides, seven sacks of chemical fertiliser, and five cans of petrol in order to boost his production and satisfy customer needs in time.

With the resultant profits, he plans to buy an additional field to extend his off-season cultivation and to save to pay for the education of his children.
