Yeabu K's Female Master Farmers Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for improved seeds, organic inputs and the tractor rental to farm a larger area with a higher yield.

Yeabu K's Female Master Farmers Group's story

Yeabu K (far left in the photo), the featured borrower of Yeabu K's Female Master Farmers Group, would like to sincerely thank all Kiva lenders for her first, second and third loans. The group has expanded their farming operations and is now generating employment for 23 other local farm labourers/assistants.

Sierra Leone is currently experiencing a difficult time economically, with rising fuel and imported rice costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic causing food shortages in some areas. The group would like to take advantage of this and increase their production further as rice prices are on the rise. Increasing production will greatly enhance members' livelihoods and also increase food access in Sierra Leone at a time when this is badly needed. The group is therefore asking for a fourth loan to expand production, grow their businesses and increase local food security.
