Mwicariria Self Help Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a heifer to increase milk production and increase her income to pay her children's school fees.

Mwicariria Self Help Group's story

The lady raising her hand in the photo is Magdalene. She is 40 years old and a single mother of two children. She is a member of the Mwicariria Self Help Group, which joined Hand in Hand Eastern Africa to benefit from enterprise development and financial management trainings.

She is a dairy farmer. She is borrowing a Kiva loan to buy a heifer, which she hopes will increase milk production thus increasing her income. She will use the anticipated income to pay her children's school fees.

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