Rachael's story

Hello Kiva community. Meet the woman featured in the above picture. Fifteen years ago Rachael’s life took a turn. She decided to invest everything in farming and stopped looking for a collar job. That became her turning point. Since then she has recorded constant progress in her life and she doesn’t complain about anything. Rachael has always had a passion for farming. She is a very proud farmer, especially when she is milking her cows that produce 10-15 liters of milk per day.

As a result of the fluctuation of prices for horticultural crops and the change in industrial trends, Rachael has sought a way out. She has decided to start selling cereals in her local market. However, with her little savings, she is unable to purchase different varieties of cereals such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and millet. That is why she is seeking this Kiva loan. She promises to repay this loan as soon as her business breaks even
