Miriam's story

Miriam is a 25-year-old woman and a single mother of two children. She joined Hand in Hand Eastern Africa in the year 2014 and has benefited from enterprise development and financial management training.

She farms maize, beans, and sorghum in addition to rearing goats. She is borrowing a Kiva loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides.

She is grateful to Kiva and its lenders for the financial support and promises to repay promptly.
