Teresa's story

Meet Teresa, a 65-year-old industrious farmer from Ntumburi farming community. Teresa is a member of Hope women group that is under Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. She lives with her husband who is a farmer and their four children who are not in school.

Teresa has been in the farming business for a period of 40 years. She is a retired primary school teacher who, regardless of teaching, valued farming as it enabled her to educate her four children to university levels. Teresa has been facing the challenge of not having adequate capital to buy certified seeds for planting, and this makes her sell her farm produce at low prices.

This loan will assist her to buy certified seeds and extend her farming area. Teresa appreciates you checking on her Kiva loan request and hopes for your support.
