Mabinti's Survivors Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for improved seeds, organic inputs and tractor rental, which will allow these farmers to escape subsistence by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Mabinti's Survivors Group's story

Mabinti K, featured borrower of Mabinti's Survivors Group, would like to sincerely thank all the Kiva lenders for their first loan. It enabled them to break free from the local lenders, who were charging them nearly 100% interest. As a result, all group members have fully recovered their businesses, have 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 children of all members go to school, and will also be used by the group to create a support fund for young female farmers.
