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

A loan helped to buy 4 tonnes of raw bananas.

Richard's story

Richard is 33 years old. He is married. Together, the couple has 3 children, 2 of whom are in school. For 10 years, Richard has been selling raw bananas. He sells raw bananas by horse-drawn carriage to his regular customers. To better serve them, he asked for a loan to stock up on 4 tonnes of additional raw bananas. His goal is to become a "wholesaler" in this area later.
