The Blessed Women Kanenankumba Group's story

Justine is a very hard-working woman doing mainly agriculture planting of various food crops for both commercial and home consumption. Justine belongs to a group called The Blessed Women's Group , where organised women who are determined like her come together to guarantee each other to get financial assistance from a financial institution. The group is happy because ever since Kiva started giving them money, life changed and every woman is capable of getting her money to put bread on the table. However, prolonged drought, pests and diseases affect the crops, and there is inadequate capital to add in their various businesses. Therefore Justine is requesting for another loan to help her open up a retail shop around her village and buy pesticides for her crops.
