Amriet is 47 years old and lives with his wife. Besides doing rice cultivation, he breeds sheep and goats. He was formerly financing his input with his paddy buyer who was charging high interest rates and offered low prices. In 2012 he had his first loan from Seva MFI and repaid that fully. Amriet can now save more. He is looking to increase production and save enough to renovate his house. He is asking Seva MFI to finance the operating costs of his rice cultivation and for that he needs a loan of SRD 10,000.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Seva's effort to reach marginalized rice farmers who are excluded from Suriname's traditional banking system. This type of loan is designed to help agricultural entrepreneurs become self sustainable. This is especially important in Suriname, where microfinance is limited. These loans provide farmers with the opportunity to thrive in a country where rural and agricultural businesses are considered to be too risky for commercial loans.
