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

A loan helped pay for hoeing, tracing, the purchase of fertilizers and phytosanitary products, as well as labor.

Shukuru Group's story

Amuri says that they both began their activities at an early age in 2004 when they inherited them from their parents. Having farmed two hectares, they harvested seven tons of rice worth 2,000 dollars, which after 750 dollars of costs generated 1,250 dollars of profit. He says that his problem is a lack of financial means to inject in his business but hopes in time to produce a large quantity so he can improve his family's situation (build a nice house, acquire other plots of land..). He is with his sister, Chantal, in the photos; she is wearing a red blouse.
