Risper's story

Risper is 22 years old and lives in Molo, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is a smallholder farmer and a force to be reckoned with. She is a proud smallholder woman who started practicing farming out of economic necessity. She learned the trade from her parents and now she honors them by continuing it. Risper is happily married and is blessed with a lovely family. For the past few years, she has been involved in mixed farming. She grows maize and vegetables, and she also keeps dairy cows.

Risper has been able to provide nutritious food for her family. She earns profits selling a variety of food crops, but she is faced with the challenge of delivering the produce in a timely manner to the market. She is seeking a loan to buy a motorbike for timely delivery of her perishable products to the market. Risper is from a remote village that has poor roads and transporting her produce to the market has been a challenge. She has suffered many losses of perishable products (milk, vegetables, and tomatoes) that require timely delivery to the market. She will increase her sales volume because she will be able to transport more goods to the market. As a result, her income will increase. You can help Risper with the loan she needs and get her closer to accomplishing her dreams.
