Pembe's story

Pembe is a newly retired 63-year-old woman who is willing to keep working until the end of her days because the activity keeps her alive, as per her statement.

Pembe is asking for financial support from Agro&Social Fund for the 12th time and for the second time from Kiva. She wants to buy two sewing machines so she can do home sewing to make clothes as she used to do for work before she retired. " Here and there, for some reasons, we always manage to have some small loans, but thank God, Agro&Social Fund has been there for us all these past ten years. And this is a blessing to us," said Pembe to the loan officer who visited her at her home.

Pembe was born with a disability and so was her husband, but this doesn't prevent them from working hard and always trying to give their support to the family.
