Aminata's Lady Farmers 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 her to escape subsistence-level farming by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Aminata's Lady Farmers Group's story

Aminata (1st on the left in the photo), the featured borrower of Aminata's Lady Farmers, would like to sincerely thank all Kiva lenders for the group's first loan. That loan 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 be used to ensure all members' children go to school, and will also be used by the group to create a support fund for young female farmers.
