Solomon's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase fertilizer and drugs to treat plants for parasites.
Solomon is from the village of Arashenda. He is 25 years old and lives with his family: his wife Pikria, two-year-old son and parents. Solomon works in a local store selling construction materials. He gets a monthly salary. Pikria is a housewife. Solomon’s father works as an electrician on a TV tower. Along with their main jobs, all adult family members are involved in the family farming business. In particular, they have one hectare of agricultural land, where cabbage, tomatoes and cherry trees are grown. All harvested vegetables and fruit are sold locally to the retailers. The total average monthly income of the family is 1,300 Laris. Solomon requested a loan to purchase fertilizers and drugs to treat plants for parasites. Part of the credit will be used to pay to the workers who will help the family with the seasonal work. After properly accomplishing the seasonal work, the family will get a high quality harvest. Their income will increase. Solomon and Pikria plan to use the increased income for house renovation, since it is already old and needs some repair. .
