Krishne is 42 years old and has a family with three school-aged children. The family of Krishne depends on the income from rice cultivation. Krishne was formerly financing his input through his paddy buyer who was charging high interest rates and offered low prices. Since the arrival of Seva MFI he is not dependent on his buyer and he can save more money through his rice production. He repaid his previous loan fully. With the profits of last season Krishne bought a second-hand tractor. He has applied for a new loan of SRD 7000 to purchase pesticides and fertilizers.

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.
