Rukia's story

Rukia is a 55-year-old refugee who is married, living in Yumbe and a mother of 7 children. Five of her children are school going.

She plants maize, beans and sim sim, through the sale of these crops she is able to provide the basic needs for her family. The crops have been greatly affected by the bad drought that the yields are poor.

She would like to diversify her business by buying clothes and selling them. Through the sale of these she will be able to pay school fees. she is very grateful to visionfund and Kiva for the financial support they have
