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

A loan helped to construct an irrigation system to minimize his losses and earn like he did before.

Caristar's story

Caristar is a resident of Mpigi district. He is an agriculturalist. He farms for income for his sustainability. He is known for maize growing, which is the main crop that he grows and trades.

His customers are maize millers, factories that make maize porridge. Due to too much sunshine, most of the crops in the garden have been destroyed. This has left him with losses, hence reduced cash inflow.

He is seeking a loan to construct an irrigation system on his farm to overcome this challenge, minimize the losses incurred and earn like he did before.
