Rosemary's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase poultry.
Meet Rosemary: She is a 52-year-old woman who has been a farmer for 22 years. She is based in Sugoi village, where she has a one-acre farm and a small house made out of earth with two habitable rooms. On the farm, she grows vegetables that she uses for both consumption and sale. This business has enabled her to raise three children. Rosemary's own upbringing was so difficult that she never had the privilege of attending school. Rosemary is seeking a loan to venture into commercial poultry farming. With the loan, she will acquire a brood of hens that will lay eggs for food, sale and hatching. This business is projected to significantly increase her income. The birds will also bring life into her home as they will be free-range and scratch the earth for bugs. The money from the investment will enable Rosemary to afford basic needs and save up for the future. This loan will go a long way in empowering her to become a better entrepreneur and improve her family's living standards.
