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

A loan helped to purchase mulch to improve soil productivity to increase yields.

Lauben's story

Lauben, as seen in the photo, is married with 2 school-going children. He is an agriculturalist who majored in banana growing and selling. His customers are traders in the neighboring markets who he sells to to get increased profits.

He faces many challenges in business like price fluctuations, heavy rains, drought, and is most highly disturbed by poor soils. These have made him harvest poor quality yields which don't compete favorably on the market.

He is seeking a loan to buy mulching materials for his fields so that he can solve the poor soils problem and be able to attain good quality produce which will earn him increased income after sale. This will put him in a good financial status hence being able to fend for his family in the current pandemic situation. Thank you funders.
