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

A loan helped to pay for improved seed, organic inputs, and a tractor rental.

Jeminatu's Survivors Group's story

Jeminatu (second from right, back row), the featured borrower of Jeminatu's Survivors Group, would like to sincerely thank all the Kiva lenders for her group's first loan. It enabled her group to break free from the local lenders who were charging them nearly 100% interest, and as a result, all group members have fully recovered their businesses, repaid their first loan, and are successfully farming again after the devastation of Ebola.

The group is now seeking a second loan to expand further. The profits will be used to ensure all members' children go to school and will also be used by the group to create a support fund for young female farmers.
