Cynthia's story

Cynthia is 30 years old, married and blessed with two children. She joined Hand in Hand Eastern Africa in 2018 and she went through all the training modules. She farms maize and beans as her main economic activity.

Cynthia is taking out a Kiva loan to purchase farm inputs, which will boost crop production, hence increasing her sales and income. She will use the increased income to cater for the family's basic needs; food, shelter, clothing, school fees and medical care.

She is grateful to Kiva and its lenders and promises to repay the loan promptly.
