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

A loan helped to buy common beans, tomatoes, onions, and cabbages to sell at the local market and boost income.

Berta's story

Berta is a 30-year-old Mozambican woman, from Messica, a village in the Province of Manica. She's married and lives with her husband and their five lovely children.

Berta is a very determined and very hardworking woman, but also a very altruistic one, since she helps other women like her. For instance, in her community, she's coordinating a group of 35 women aiming to save grocery items, and after the end of a cycle they distribute the items and rejoice together.

In order to support her husband and take care of their children, Berta started selling some crops in the street in front of her house. Thanks to some training, Berta could be able to identify a market to where she could often supply fresh products such tomatoes, cabbages and onions.

Since the demand of the market for more products has increased, Berta faces a challenge to continue providing the products. For this reason, she is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more crops such as common beans, tomatoes, onions, and cabbages, to maintain her clients and to ensure an income to her lovely family.
