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


A loan helped to buy masonry tools like chisels, wheelbarrows, and work boots.


Gregory's story

Gregory is 48 years old. He is married, and they have four children. He practices stone house construction (masonry) and farming. He has been in the business for 12 years.

This is his ninth loan loan cycle. He will use the loan to buy masonry tools like chisels, wheelbarrows, and work boots.

He will use the anticipated profits from his expanded business to educate his children, to meet other domestic needs like clothes, food, etc., and to save up to diversify into a horticultural business to increase his income.

His hope and dream is to be financially stable with several businesses.
