Betty's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy cereals so that she can resell them at a profit thus supporting her family during this tough economic crisis.
Betty is a 40-year old mother of two children who lives in Busia, an area endowed with natural beauty. She is a resourceful woman who has been in the business of farming for the past three years. Through farming, she has made meaningful accomplishments. Betty is seeking this loan to buy cereals so that she can resell them at a profit thus supporting her family during this tough economic crisis. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interests on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of smallholder farmers through providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Be inspired to support Betty with a loan this Day.
