Zawadi's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase tree farm inputs such as eucalyptus seedlings and fertilizer, as well as to pay for technical trainings and maintenance support.
Zawadi's Group's story
Zawadi, meaning "present" in Swahili, is a fifty-year-old dryland farmer and mother of nine children. Zawadi has little capital for farm inputs, making her agricultural endeavors difficult to conduct on a profitable scale. She is joining the KOMAZA microforestry program so that she may increase her income. With the profits from her tree farm, Zawadi plans to pay her children's school fees and build a house for her family.
