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.

Youth Stars Female Famers Group's story

Neneh S (first from right), the featured borrower of the Youth Stars Female Farmers, is a 23-year-old mother of one. She is married and supports her young family with her farming and petty trading. Being an energetic, passionate businesswoman, Neneh says, "Our youth have to do more to support our community." Neneh wants to double her farming operations and has organized a large group of other young women who are currently trapped in a cycle of subsistence and take extremely high-interest loans for poor quality inputs during planting time. A no-interest Kiva loan will enable this outstanding group of young, determined women and their community grow.
