Peace Lovers Lema Women Group's story

The lady raising her hand in the photo is Ndungwa. She is 38 years old, married and blessed with five children. She is a member of Peace Lovers Lema Women Group, which joined Hand in Hand Eastern Africa in the year 2015 and has benefited from enterprise development and financial management training.

Ndungwa does poultry farming. She wants to diversify her activities by starting to grow fruit. She is therefore borrowing a Kiva loan to buy fertilizer and expand her poultry shed. She hopes this will increase her production hence increasing her income. She will therefore use the anticipated income to provide food and pay school fees for her children.

Ndungwa is grateful to Kiva and their lenders for the financial support and promises to repay promptly.
