Consolata's story

Consolata, 57 years old, appreciates Kiva lenders for creating opportunities for farmers like her around the world. Consolata was unable to study to attain a professional career because of the economic situation faced by her family.

Her journey in farming started a few years ago when she realized that jobs available for skilled people in her area do not provide livable wages. Through farming, her life is taking a true transformation, and she sees a brighter future ahead. Through crop and dairy farming, she has been able to earn a decent and honest income. Because of the passion she has for farming, she has even nicknamed one of her cows.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic. On this note, there is a need to use upgraded farming inputs for effective production. Consolata has requested a loan that she will use to purchase farming inputs, such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques; using high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and, hence, increased levels of profit.

Kindly lend to Consolata!
