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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs and hire laborers to help a single mom grow more crops on her horticultural farm and help a woman who believes Kiva is the solution to her problems to progress.

Addah's story

It is the hope of every farmer across the globe to make profits out of their business. And yes, this can be possible through the aid of compassionate Kiva lenders. Addah (the only woman pictured above) is a humble woman who lives in peaceful coexistence with her neighbors (also pictured). Considering how things were tough for her and her family when she was growing up, Addah feels that she has come a long way to be an independent woman. She believes Kiva is the solution to her hunger for success.

Addah started farming five years ago on a small plot she acquired. On the farm, she has dairy cows and a small garden. In order to grow more crops on the farm, Addah is seeking a loan to pay for farm inputs and to hire laborers. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business.

With your help, Addah will be able to pay the high cost of farm inputs that are necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profits will be plowed back into the business to fuel growth as she sets a good foundation for her children. Addah really hopes for your help and contribution. She is thankful in advance. She is looking forward to your financial support and hoping for your trust.
