A loan helped to buy cereals (beans and maize) to sell in her village market, and as a mom, use the profits to support her children.

Mellyne's story

As the only voice of hope that her family has today, 41-year-old Mellyne stands strong. She is determined to break the chains of poverty that have formed a cycle in her family. Mellyne has a great history of valor, perseverance and courage in farming. Her primary sources of income have been milk, crops and some small business ventures that help her make ends meet. She is determined and is very focused on her goals and dreams.

Mellyne is seeking a loan to stock her cereals business. She will use the money to purchase high-demand cereals, such as corn, cow peas (black-eyed peas), beans and maize, to satisfy the demand in her village and eventually use the profits to support her ageing parents and children. She plans to transport surplus cereals in bulk to faraway markets, where she will sell them at prices high enough to cover all the expenses incurred, plus profits. Mellyne is confident that she will be able to repay the loan on time because she is hardworking and financially disciplined.

Returns from the investment will change her life because she will use the additional income to raise her family's living standards and pay for her children's education. Her positive attitude and her hopes of getting ahead show that Mellyne has an immense desire to better herself and, of course, a desire to receive a favorable response to her loan request. Support her to make her dreams come true.

This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals, farm inputs and farming equipment.
