Gbombsamba's Top Female 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 seeds, organic inputs and a tractor rental, which will allow them to escape subsistence farming by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Gbombsamba's Top Female Farmers Group's story

Fatmata (1st on left), featured borrower of Gbombsamba's Top Female Farmers group, 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 to ensure all member's children go to school.
