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

A loan helped to buy ingredients for making badjias [cowpea fritters].

Etelvina's story

Etelvina is a 44-year-old lady who lives common-law and has been a vendor for more than 20 years. She engages in selling badjias [cowpea fritters] at the door of the largest bakery.

She is the mother of 5 children, of whom 3 are of age and independent, and 2 are minors, attend school, and are under her responsibility.

This is her first loan. With it, she intends to buy cowpeas (also known as black-eyed peas) for making badjias. She dreams of being a large-scale entrepreneur.
