Kadiatu'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 seed, organic inputs, and tractor rental, which will allow her to escape subsistence by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Kadiatu's Best Female Farmers Group's story

Kadiatu K (first on right), the featured borrower of Kadiatu'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 after the devastation of Ebola.

The group is now seeking a second loan to expand further. The profits will address the urgent need for local food production and food access in their community.
