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

A loan helped to buy more fruits and vegetables such as avocados to sell and boost her business.

Judy's story

Judy 38, is a hardworking single mother. Her children are aged 17, 15, 14, and one year old. She runs a grocery business selling fresh vegetables and fruits to her customers to sustain her family. Her challenge has been a lack of capital to stock her business, which has led it to suffer as she has not been able to meet her demand.

She believes that if she is assisted with this loan she will be able to boost her business and increase her revenue through which she will be able to pay back her loan. Her dream is to educate her children and expand her business to lift the standard of living for her family.
