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

A loan helped to buy pigs.

Ruddy's story

Ruddy has worked in his business for ten years. Together with a partner he sells his products directly to neighbours in the community. He wishes to invest more in the business so he is seeking this loan to buy fully developed pigs. This purchase will help Ruddy to increase income since he will have more meat to sell. Then he can improve the quality of his products and increase income so as to improve the wellbeing of his family.
