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

A loan helped to purchase diesel to complete spring planting.

Ala's story

Ala thanks Kiva lenders for the previous loan that helped her to purchase stock of goods to develop a sustainable business. Due to this, she was able to increase her business capacity.

Ala continues to work as an entrepreneur. She has two small shops, one in the city and the other in the village, which she manages. She also raises poultry and animals. This year Ala leased 50 hectares of land from the village. This land will be cultivated by her husband and son with their own tractors. Ala bought corn seeds and sunflowers to sow in the ground in April. For all spring work with tractors, she must procure enough diesel for her son and husband to start working.

Because last year was a dry one, her crops suffered and she did not earn as much income as she had planned. Now, not having enough money, Ala decided to apply for a loan from Kiva. As a result, she will be able to complete the necessary spring work. She expects to get a decent income after selling her products.
