For small-scale farmers in Rwanda, getting a loan is nearly impossible. And yet a small loan would enable them to significantly improve their productivity. Microcredit institution CLECAM gives them a chance to do so. Like Marie Chantal: "Before, my production was low because of lack of capital. With a loan from CLECAM, I could buy seeds at the right time and my yields have almost tripled.” she says. “Now, my pension is secured." This loan will allow CLECAM to give more than 700 farmers, more than half of whom are women, a small loan to also improve their livelihoods.

Humphrey Mburu is a passionate entrepreneur. As one of our most loyal entrepreneurs, his company has already had multiple loans, all of which are repaid right on time. Thanks to those loans, the Kenyan processing company can buy potatoes directly from small-scale farmers and pay them directly. This provides these farmers with a stable income. Since the first loan, the number of farmers Sereni buys from has more than quadrupled, and the business itself is also growing well. This loan enables that growth, and therefore the success of the business and a better livelihood for more and more farmers.

Indonesian farmers are struggling, just like their buyers, mostly small informal traders. Both are working inefficiently due to lack of knowledge and resources and can barely keep their heads above water. PasarMIKRO wants to make them stronger. Through a simple app on their cell phones, they gain access to new markets, business advice and knowledge about current market prices. PasarMIKRO also offers them trade finance, which allows them to buy more efficiently and pay farmers directly. "When egg prices suddenly drop, thanks to PasarMIKRO I'm not in trouble right away," says Athok from Blitar, East Java.
