Flabia is a farmer in Ruhaama and married to Keneth, a primary teacher. She wants to buy fertilizer to use in her newly planted banana plantation to enable her to increase the income of the family and be able to pay tuition for their children as well as adequately meet the family's basic needs. She is grateful to be partnering with Kiva and is sure it will work out well.
