Rita's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase bags of maize for her "kenkey" (fermented maize dough) production.
Rita produces "kenkey" for sale. In front of Rita in the photo is the maize dough she uses in her "kenkey" production. She is married to a farmer and has five children. She uses her income to help her husband in the general up-keep of the family. Rita needs this loan to purchase bags of maize for her "kenkey" production. With the new profit, Rita will expand her business.
