A loan of $5,050 helps to buy fertilizers and seeds to grow resistant crops.

Wilnor’s story

Wilnor is leading a social enterprise with many farmers. With other actors, he lets his farmers benefit from a literacy program, health checkups, and community involvement.

Now he would like to find a loan to increase their capacity by providing them with fertilizers and seeds to grow manioc, maize, and tomatoes during the coming seasons. If this loan is obtained, at least 100 members will work as contractual workers in farmed lands and they will benefit from the harvest.

This loan is special because:

It provides small and growing businesses in Haiti with access to capital.
