Edna's story

Edna has never felt sorry for herself for a lack of formal education. Edna uses her natural abilities to pull out of her poverty situation. Her perseverance and determination have enabled her to be able to send her children to school, regardless of the many adversities she has had to go through. Edna has never lost her enthusiasm, but moves from one challenge to another and emerges a victor.

Edna has been practicing farming for the last eight years now, and she has made great progress. Her primary sources of income are milk, eggs, and vegetables from her small farm. She also enjoys annual bonuses as a tea farmer in her Kapsowar area.

Edna is requesting this loan from Kiva lenders, via Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farming inputs (fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides). Through this loan, Edna is going to increase her crop production, which will translate into increased income. She will be able to complete the tuition fees for her children as well as save for the upkeep of her family.

Edna has thanked her lenders for their goodwill and support in her life.
