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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer for use on her farm, so she can earn greater profits to improve her standard of living.

Cynthia's story

For the past few years, Cynthia, a 30-year-old mom of three, has been actively involved in agribusiness and making great profits. Because of her great passion for farming, she even has dairy cows, which makes her a very proud farmer.

Through her dairy cows she is able to get rich creamy milk, and this helps her meet the basic necessities of her family. Cynthia also practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. This is why she is kindly seeking a loan to buy farm inputs.

Through this loan, Cynthia will be able to buy high-nutrient fertilizers and good-quality pesticides and herbicides. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques. Using high-quality chemicals will save her the time and energy of having to use artificial means of pests and weed control.

Cynthia hopes that Kiva lenders will extend their goodwill.
