Risper’s small business success

Risper has been part of the Foster Family Loans program for 2 years. She suffered a few setbacks but has worked hard and created her successful fruit business. Risper was able to pay off her final loan and now her business is self sustainable. 

Mangoes are in season now and I have just had a good harvest from my farm. I hope to continue making good profit selling my fruit,” Risper explains to Everlyne, our project manager. She also sells oranges and apples and other fruit that she can grow and harvest. Her children are still in school and enjoy fresh fruit everyday from their trees at home. Risper is proud that she can provide a good education for her children. 

3 other women have left the Foster Family Loans program recently, not because they have defaulted on their loans or that they are not managing their small businesses well; but quite the opposite. These women have successfully repaid their loans and their businesses are self-sustainable. These women have provided homes for orphans and in the process have become successful business women.

This program is continuing to go from strength to strength thanks to the support of our Captivating family.

Risper is in the red top selling her beautiful home grown fruit. Her apples are some of the best in the region.
