Nyanja Matope 5 Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy bags of Irish potatoes (seeds).

Nyanja Matope 5 Group's story

Aleka aged 26 is a married woman who takes care of 3 children. Together with her husband they engage in Irish potatoes farming.

She requires the loan to grow Irish potatoes for sale. Aleka started this business some years ago with aim of providing basic needs like food to her household. She will use the money to buy Irish potatoes (seeds). The profits will enable her to purchase food and clothes for her family members.

Her future plans involves buying a mini bus (for transport business) and expanding her capital from MW400,000 to MW600,000. In a couple of years, she believes that these plans will be achieved.
