Yrene's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped for harvesting her feed crop.
Yrene has no schooling. She and her husband, a farmer, have 4 grown children, all of whom live away. Two of Yrene's grandchildren live with her and her husband. Yrene has kept cattle for two years, work that she learned from her husband so that she could generate an extra income for the family. She had only cared for her house and family before so the work was new to her. She works within 1 1/2 kilometers of her house. Yrene will use this loan to harvest her feed crop. The loan will help a lot because she needs the crop to feed her cattle. Her greatest wish, she says, is to support her granddaughter's schooling.
