Mbalu's Best 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 tractor rental, which will allow these farmers to escape subsistence by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Mbalu's Best Female Farmers Group's story

Mbalu K, first on the right, is the featured borrower of Mbalu's Best Female Farmers Group. They 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, 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 members' children go to school.
