Sama's Female Farmers Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for improved seeds, organic inputs, and tractor rental, which will allow these farmers to escape subsistence by farming a larger area with a higher yield.

Sama's Female Farmers Group's story

Sama K (first on the left), the featured borrower of Sama's Female Farmers Group, would like to sincerely thank all the Kiva lenders for their first loan. It enabled this group's members to break free from the local lenders who were charging them nearly 100% interest and as a result, all group members have fully recovered their businesses, have repaid their first loan, and are successfully farming again after the devastation of Ebola. The group is now seeking a second loan to expand further. The profits will be used to ensure all members' children go to school, and to invest in a village savings program.
