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

A loan helped to buy rice from a local producer in Makeni, supporting local farmers while scaling up her business.

Kadiatu's Recovery Group's story

Kadiatu, the featured borrower of Kadiatu's Recovery Group (the first one on the left in the picture), 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 trading again after the devastation of Ebola.

The group is now requesting a second loan which will be used to further expand its members' businesses and ensure that all their children go to school.
