Mabinti's Female Farmers Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for improved seeds, organic inputs and tractor rental, which will allow these farmers to escape subsistence by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Mabinti's Female Farmers Group's story

Mabinti C (1st on the left), the featured borrower of Mabinti's Female Farmers, would like to sincerely thank all of the Kiva lenders for their first loan. It 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 by the group to create a support fund for young female farmers.
