Prewesh is 25 years old and lives with his parents and two school-aged sisters. After finishing his secondary school he took over his father's company. Prewesh is now the main breadwinner at home and besides rice cultivation he breeds cows. With the support of Seva MFI he bought a secondhand tractor and repaid his loan fully. His goal is to save for the education of his two sisters. He asks Seva MFI for a new loan of SRD 10,000 for the purchase of fertilizer and pesticides for his rice production.

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.
