Lucy's story

Lucy is a 37-year-old married woman blessed with one child.

She joined Hand in Hand Eastern Africa in the year 2018 and has benefited from enterprise development and financial management training.

Lucy is a poultry farmer. She is borrowing a Kiva loan to buy poultry feed. She hopes this will increase her production, hence increasing her income. She will use the anticipated income to pay school fees for her children.

Lucy is grateful to Kiva and their lenders for the financial support and promises to repay promptly.
