Adama's Best Female Farmers Group's story

Adama K. (first from right), featured borrower of Adama's Best Female Farmers Group, would like to sincerely thank all the Kiva lenders for the first loan.

It enabled the group's members to break free from the local lenders who were charging them nearly 100% interest. As a result, all group members have fully recovered their businesses, have repaid their first loan and are successfully farming again.

The group is now seeking a second loan to expand further. The profits will be used create a support fund for young female farmers and help them get their start in business.
