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

A loan helped to set up a canteen in her village.

Raijieli's story

Raijieli and her family live in a very remote village where it takes hours to get to the nearest town and the only form of transport is a huge carrier truck that leaves in the wee hours of the morning and returns late in the evenings.

For years, shopping has always been an occasional activity due to the expensive cost of traveling and people usually travel to shop once in about six weeks so budgeting is crucial to prevent any stock outs.

Raijieli humbly requests a loan so that she may set up a canteen in her village community to help her family and fellow villagers. Her family depends on commercial farming and sometimes weekly market sales are not good so she believes the canteen will be another source of income for her family while she provides small groceries for families until their next shopping trip to the city.
