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

A loan helped to buy the necessary inputs to cultivate rice.

Jean's story

Jean successfully carried on farming pigs and cultivating rice. Using the profits from his previous loan, he bought four pigs and also put some money into savings. Jean is pleased and determined to keep growing his business. He hopes for the lenders' support and greets them with a big smile.

This time, he will focus on cultivating rice. He needs seeds, fertiliser and money for labour. He is going to sell most of the harvest and use the rest to feed his family. In the future, Jean would like to farm cattle.
