Honorata's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy a dairy cow.


Honorata's story

Honorata lives in the community of Colomi; she’s 43-years-old, single and has two children, a little one and another attending school. She’s economically independent. She works in agriculture growing on a two hectare plot of land she inherited from her parents; she grows various species of potatoes rotating her crops. She has experience in this line of work and also owns two heads of cattle: two cows and one bullock. Honorata needs the loan to buy another dairy cow and to buy organic manure. Because of this she appeared to request a loan. Lastly, Honorata felt happy at having the opportunity of accessing credit as well as being able to count on help from the institution.
