but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped purchase modern farm inputs and boost the quality and quantity of her tea farming.

Sheila's story

Wonderful community of Kiva!

Meet Sheila. To lead a comfortable lifestyle has always been Sheila's dream, a smallholder farmer who works with a lot of care and perseverance to achieve her objectives. Today, she has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock, such as cows. She also earns income from a personal business.

Sheila is content with the farming lifestyle. Her childhood was very challenging, and because of this, she promised herself that she would work hard to get out of poverty.

Sheila is seeking a loan, which she will use to pay for more farm inputs and boost her tea farm production. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited available resources to expand in the farm business. With your help, Sheila will be able to pay the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profits will be invested back into the business to fuel growth, as she wants to set a good example and foundation for her children.

She really hopes for your help and contribution, and she thanks you in advance.
