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

A loan helped to buy cereals (beans and maize) to sell in her village market and, as a mom, use the profits to support her children.

Lydiah's story

Lydiah is a mother of three children whose determination to uplift her family makes her an outstanding woman. She has always had aspirations of becoming a successful woman and that is why she took on farming. Her primary sources of income have been from milk and crops, plus some small business ventures that help her make ends meet. She is determined and is very focused on her goals and dreams. Lydiah is seeking a loan to buy cereals such as corn and beans to sell in her village market. She will use the money to purchase high-demand cereals and grains, such as beans and maize, to satisfy the demand in her village and she will eventually use the profits to support her aging parents and children. She plans to transport surplus cereals in bulk to faraway markets, where she will sell them at prices high enough to cover all the expenses incurred, plus make a profit. Lydiah is confident that she will be able to repay the loan on time because she is hardworking and financially disciplined. Returns from the investment will change Lydiah's life because she will use the additional income to raise her family's living standards and pay for her children's education. Her positive attitude and her hopes of getting ahead show that Lydiah has an immense desire to better herself and, of course, a desire to receive a favorable response to her loan request. Help make her dreams true.
