Satiesh is a 31-year-old and has a family with two children. He is a rice farmer on land that he leased from others.

In order to take good care of his family, he needed to earn more income; that’s why he increased his rice areas with the support of Seva MFI. He has already repaid the money he borrowed from Seva MFI.

Satiesh recently inherited a residential plot from his grandfather and wants to build a house on it through the profits from his rice production. He asked Seva MFI to support his rice production and applied for a loan of SRD 8,000 to purchase fertilizers and pesticides.

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.
