Sylivia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fertilizers for her coffee plantation to boost crop production.

Sylivia's story

Sylivia is married with schooling children. She is a farmer with many years of experience under her belt. She majors in coffee growing as her main source of income.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, for Sylivia, as a low-income earner, it is a bit challenging for her to access enough funds to buy the farm inputs. Since Sylivia is a client of UGAFODE, which is in partnership with Kiva, she has applied for a loan to buy fertilizers for her coffee farm. This will improve her crop farm's production and bring in more income for her family.

Sylivia appreciates the support that will improve her farming business.
