Hawa's Finest 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 these farmers to farm a larger area with a higher yield.

Hawa's Finest Female Farmers Group's story

Hawa K, first on the left, is the featured borrower of Hawa's Finest Female Farmers Group. She would like to sincerely thank all the Kiva lenders for their first loan. It enabled them to break free from the local lenders who were charging them nearly 100% interest. As a result, all of the 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.
