A loan helped to buy more manure, fertilizer and some new farming equipment in order to increase her farming productivity.


Francelina's story

Francelina is an enterprising young woman who works in agriculture in her village. Every day, Francelina is doing her activity by growing vegetables like pumpkins and red beans and looking after her farm. After the vegetables are grown, she harvests them in order to sell them at the local market. She has been making a living from her vegetable farm for many years now with her own working capital.

Now, she is requesting a $1,000 loan through KIF to help with her agriculture activity. Every day she is busy with farming because she is earning a good income from it. Francelina will use this loan to buy more manure, fertilizer and some new farming equipment in order to increase her farming productivity.
