Mariat's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farmland to augment her teacher's salary.

Mariat's story

Mariat is a teacher in a college in Kamwenge, Uganda. She solely depends on this income to support her two children who are attending school. She wishes to get a better-paying job and expand her income since her salary is very low.

Mariat wishes to thank Kiva lenders for her previous loan that she used to buy a piece of land. She is now requesting a loan to buy a piece of land to farm when she is not teaching. She thanks Kiva for its financial support rendered through Hofokam Limited, Uganda.
