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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizers, for improving her banana crop.

Gladwel's story

Meet Gladwel. She is a 51-year-old mother. Having been raised in a poor rural home, she was never lucky enough to secure admission to a higher learning institution. However, she learned farming skills from her parents.

Gladwel also engages in crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why Gladwel is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs. With this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality fertilizer to greatly improve her banana crop production.

Gladwel is a visionary and her goal for this season is to boost her crop production above that of the previous year. All this can be achieved with the help and goodwill of the lenders.
