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


A loan helped to buy more manure, and some new farming equipment in order to increase the amount of tobacco in next coming harvest.


Evangelina's story

Evangelina works is agriculture, and she mainly grows tobacco on her farm. After the tobacco is grown and ripe, she will harvest the slices in small pieces (as shown of the photo) then she will bring them to the market to sell. She has been planting tobacco for a year now with her own working capital.

She is requesting a loan of $1500 through KIF to help her improve her business. Every day, she is doing her activities by planting and looking after her farm because she makes a living from it and earning a good income for her loving family. She plans to use this loan to buy more manure, and some new farming equipment in order to increase the amount of tobacco in next coming harvest.
