Total loan: $4,850

Fatmata's Ebola Recovery Group

Royocam, , Sierra Leone / Agriculture

Fatmata's Ebola Recovery 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.

Fatmata's Ebola Recovery Group's story

Fatmata G (first from left), featured borrower of Fatmata's Ebola Recovery 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. The profits will go towards an emergency fund accessible to all members for support in the event of illness or injury.
