Roopchand'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 pesticides.
Roopchand is 53 years old, and he has a family with two school-aged children. Roopchand lost his parents while young, and as the oldest son he was entrusted with the task of taking care of the small rice business of his father. He also took care of his younger brothers and sisters. With the arrival of Seva MFI, Roopchand invested in his rice areas, and now he sells his crop as seed, which provides him with a bigger margin. He repaid his loan fully, and now he needs a new loan of SRD 10,000 to purchase fertilizer and pesticides.
