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

A loan helped to buy lemon juice and palm oil.

Khady's story

Khady, age 55, is the mother of seven children who all go to school. She sells lemon juice and palm oil at the central market of her locality. Her business is doing well but she's struggling to fill all orders, since demand exceeds supply. In order to balance this supply deficit, she's seeking a loan of XOF 200'000 to increase her inventory and her sales capacity.

She uses a big part of her profits to take good care of her family and, especially, for the education of her child who attends middle school. She dreams to expand her business and build her own house.
