Lucy's story

Meet Lucy, a 46 years old farmer from Ntumburi community. Lucy,is a member of Hope women group, that is under Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. The borrower lives with her husband and 1 child who is in school. She gets to earn her income and offer her child education through farming.

Lucy has been farming for the last 10 years and she dreams to be a renowned farmer in her community. Lucy has encountered a problem with water shortage preventing her from irrigating her crops. Lucy says that her soil tends to be unhealthy since no fertilizers have been effective on her farm. She plans to use the loan to construct a dam for storing water for irrigation and to hire an agricultural extension officer to take samples for soil testing.

Lucy appreciates you checking on her Kiva loan request and hopes for your support. Thank you.
