Masaprr'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 buy improved seeds, organic inputs and rent a tractor to escape subsistence by farming a larger area and producing a higher yield.

Masaprr's Best Female Farmers Group's story

Marie (the 1st on left), featured borrower of Masaprr's Best Female Farmers Group, 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.

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, and will address the urgent need for local food production and access in their community.
