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

A loan helped to buy more stock for her retail store and also a new freezer for the store.

Ane's story

Ane and her family run a family retail store. The store is located in their front yard, where they provide services of serving the village people with their needs of useful and affordable goods and meats.

Their store opens from Monday to Saturday every week, from seven in the morning until midnight. Their business started with Ane's first loan, with which they were able to build a store and buy stocks to start the store. Every loan she takes, is used as capital for the store. They provide good service, so people do not usually travel to town for their needs, instead they have get it from the store.

She plans on using her loan money to buy more stock for the store and also buy a new freezer so they can have enough space for the frozen goods.
