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

A loan helped to buy plowing and harvest tools, and seeds for his land for cultivation.

Youssef's story

Youssef is 31, married, and has two children. His father is dead, so he lives with his mother in the same home and has become financially responsible for her. He previously requested two loans and fully repaid them. One was for his previous business which was phone accessories and the other was for his agricultural land which he has already from his father.

He says that land cultivation is very profitable and helpful for his family income that he could to help his brother in his marriage preparations. He cultivates with his brother a small agricultural land about 7 carats with different crops every season to not strain the land.

He is now about to ask to renew the loan for the new season and reclaim the land for the cultivation of a potato crop. He is requesting this loan to buy some plowing and harvest tools and seeds for his land for cultivation. He hopes to continue his children's education and have enough money for living needs and his mother's medical care.
