Gladys's story

Gladys is a 35-year-old, married woman who is blessed with three children. She joined Hand in Hand Eastern Africa in 2018 and has benefited from enterprise development and financial management training.

She farms maize and beans. She is requesting a Kiva loan to buy seeds and fertilizer. She hopes this will increase her production hence increasing her income. She will use the anticipated income to provide food and clothing for her family.

She is grateful to Kiva and their lenders for the financial support and promises to repay promptly.
