Inderjiet is fifty-four years old and lives with his wife and two sons. He also has four other children who are already married. Inderjiet works as a field worker in a banana company. His income was not enough to pay for his children's marriage expenses, so he also started cultivating rice. After his retirement, Inderjiet wants to leave behind a stable business for his sons. As a field worker in a banana company, he had no choice but to work with Seva MFI. Inderjiet wants to borrow SRD 6,000 from Seva MFI to buy a grader. With the grader he will be able to equalize his land on time, in order to increase his rice production and income.

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.
