Samba'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 which will allow these farmers to escape subsistence by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Samba's Survivors Group's story

Samba M (1st from right, sitting) is the featured borrower of Samba's Survivors Group. She would like to sincerely thank all the KIVA lenders for the group’s 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 all members' children receive an education, and will also be used by the group to create a support fund for aspiring female farmers.
