Trufena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more cereals to resell and make more profits to give her children a better life, as a single mum and their only hope.

Trufena's story

Trufena (pictured in her side business) is a humble mum who has always held her head high even in the face of adversity. She is a very determined mum who always sacrifices her time and effort to keep her children happy. She is very happy to be introduced to Kiva ahead of International Mother’s Day and she takes this as a huge opportunity to succeed and to give her family a big change.

Trufena is a single mum with two beautiful kids who are both in school. She has been a farmer and a cereal trader for ten years. She also runs a side business (seamstress). Trufena gets a commission through selling cereals to her regular customers who are very loyal. She continually makes an effort to build strong relationships because reputation is everything in her line of work.

Given that Trufena can arrange sales more easily than regular farmers, she prefers to deal with larger volumes of produce. Trufena took out her first loan to buy cereals, but the demand has been overwhelming and she is requesting another loan to buy more cereals from local farmers at fair prices.

By funding Trufena’s loan, her clients can focus on production rather than sales, and it will help her family earn a better income to uplift their livelihood. Please support her dream by giving Trufena a loan!
