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

A loan helped to purchase farm inputs to improve soil nutrition to boost sales.

Maria's story

Maria is a single mother of 3 children. She is a renown farmer in her area of residence. This has long been her family's source of income and she is therefore well versed with the business.

Currently bananas are in high demand at the market and can generate profits if they are of good quality. Maria is seeking a loan to add farm inputs like mulch, fertilizers and manure to apply in her fields to improve the soil productivity.

This will improve the product quality and quantity hence boosting sales and enabling her to earn higher profits. Thank you funders.
