Pasie's Survivor 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 tractor rental which will allow these farmers to escape subsistence by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Pasie's Survivor Group's story

Pasie M (first from right), the featured borrower of Pasie's Survivor 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, and 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. Pasie's group will use the proceeds of their second round of growth to create a support fund for members affected by bad weather or crop failure.
