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


A loan helped to build a new barn that would offer a larger space for her cows and better working conditions and after that she would be able to buy another milk cow to sell more milk.


Merushe's story

Merushe wants to thank all of the lenders for the previous loan,Merushe is married and a mother of two children. She is a hardworking woman who works as a farmer where she raises cows and plants her land to grow different crops. Her husband works in construction but receives a very low salary. For this reason she works hard to help her family with higher incomes and support her children at school. She makes her living by selling milk and crops in a local market and neighbors. She has applied for a loan to build a new barn that would offer a larger space for her cows and better working conditions and after that she would be able to purchase another milk cow to sell more milk and generate more incomes to improve her and her family’s livelihood. She is grateful to all the Kiva lenders for the help!
