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

A loan helped to buy the initial stocks of groceries and fuels (kerosene and benzene).

Sereana's story

Sereana enjoys life at the village, the love of being around relatives and their communal way of doing work. For instance, every Monday the village headman walks around the village, and at strategic spots, would call out the announcements and then the villagers would gather for the weekly clean up.

As an active member of the church and as an elder for her clan, there are many expectations of her and many times she leads family discussions and plans for any upcoming occasions. However, during many of these meetings, it is usually the custom for the members to give a monetary donation for the planned function. As a pensioner, Sereana however sometimes wishes she could give more.

For this reason, she has started an income generating business that would suit her schedule and lifestyle. Sereana finally decided on starting a canteen, and she hopes to receive a loan so she can buy her initial stocks of groceries and fuels.

Sereana hopes that her lenders will have faith in her and her entrepreneurial skills.
