Soraida's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped get her new business growing fruit off the ground.

Soraida's story

Soraida, age 31, wants to start a business growing fruits. She learned the work from her brother, and she wants to use her knowledge as her family finds itself in economic need. Soraida herself is a happy woman, very upbeat, and the hard-working mother of two children, ages 9 and 13. She will use the loan to buy supplies, fertilizers, and seeds as she only has the land right now. All this is yet to do, though, and agricultural supplies are very expensive, which explains the amount requested. With the help this loan provides, she will be able to start and establish a business selling fruits; she hopes that this will let her improve her living conditions from what they are today. Soraida invites lenders to support her loan. She is looking for economic stability so that she can provide well being and a bright future to her two children.
