A loan of $1,200 helped to buy maize and beans to sell.


Garasiano's story

Garasiano is a 32-year-old gentleman who deals in a produce business which he has run for a period of four years. He started this business with capital derived from the transport business that he still operates. He says inadequate capital is the major factor affecting the venture.



Garasiano is requesting a loan to buy maize and beans to sell. He would like to build a permanent house for his family and venture into modern farming methods instead of buying from other farmers in the future.
