Mary's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to add stock of more products such as rice, bales of maize flour, and wheat flour among others to boost her general store.

Mary's story

Mary, 66, is happily married and has three lovely children. She supports them as a mother. Her husband and she are both peasant farmers, but she also runs a general store in the nearby town. She earns her money mainly from the general store.

General stores have become even more popular with the recent pandemic COVID-19 for bringing valuable essentials nearer to the people. This is one of the reasons she is struggling to adequately stock her shop, as demand has greatly risen during this period.

Mary is kindly requesting a loan that will enable her to stock her business, and she will pay back her loan using the profits she makes. Her dream is to own a bigger shop that is well-stocked in the future.
