Rugiatu's Female Farmers Group's story

Rugiatu (first on left), featured borrower of Rugiatu's Female Farmers, would like to sincerely thank all the Kiva's 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.
