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


A loan helped to buy some organic fertilizers and seeds for cultivation with modern equipment that would help him with his land.


Mohammed's story

Mohammed is 28, married, and has two little kids. His wife is a housewife. Mohammed has a small piece of agricultural land of about six carats. He grows basil; it's an aromatic annual herb of the mint family, and is used in cooking. He started this business to be his stable source of income.

He wants to expand his business, so he is requesting a loan to buy some organic fertilizers and seeds for cultivation with modern equipment that would help him with his land. He hopes to expand his sales, to sell in local markets and to sell to Attar traders.

He will use the profits from the business to help his father with his sister's marriage expenses and to buy electric devices and new clothes. He hopes to be able to provide his family with a dignified life.
