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

A loan helped to purchase high-demanded cereals, such as beans and maize, to satisfy the demand in her village and generate profits to support her poor family.

Janet's story

Janet is a 40-year-old mother of 2 school-going children whose determination to uplift her family makes her an outstanding woman. She has always had aspirations of becoming a successful woman and that is why she took on farming. Her primary sources of income have been from milk and crops, plus some small business ventures that help her make ends meet. She is determined and is very focused on her goals and dreams.

Janet is seeking a loan to stock her cereals and grains business. She will use the money to purchase high-demanded cereals and grains, such as beans and maize, to satisfy the demand in her village and she will eventually use the profits to support her aging parents and children.

She plans to transport surplus cereals in bulk to faraway markets, where she will sell them at prices high enough to cover all the expenses incurred, plus make a profit. Janet is confident that she will be able to repay the loan on time because she is hardworking and financially disciplined.

Returns from the investment will change Janet's life because she will use the additional income to raise her family's living standards and pay for her children's education. Her positive attitude and her hopes of getting ahead show that Janet has an immense desire to better herself and, of course, a desire to receive a favorable response to her loan request.

Help make her dreams true.
