Kinepna Group's story

Themkhoneng is a mother of two sons and one daughter from a village far from town. She is the featured borrower of the group, pictured with her hand raised. She sells vegetables in the nearest market from her village and supports her family from the small profit she makes. She loves her children unconditionally and has worked very hard to support them. Themkhoneng wishes she could provide her children with all their material needs so that they do not envy their friends in their social environment. “To meet their material needs is not easy. I can barely buy them new clothes to replace the worn-out ones” she said. She is very protective and gives all her attention to her children. Like every other mother, she wishes her children to become successful and have decent careers in the future. Her husband is engaged in shifting cultivation and he grows peas, beans, potatoes, corn. She aspires to have a piggery at home to rear piglets so that she can sell the full-grown pigs as a source of income generation. Rearing piglets is considered very beneficial in the area because most of the tribes buy pigs for consumption whenever they have social and cultural occasions, celebrations and ceremonies. With the Kiva loan, Themkhoneng will buy piglets and also build a low cost piggery inside their house compound. She is skilled in rearing pigs and has got experience since they had a piggery in their childhood home where she grew up. She is excited and sends her good wishes to the lenders. The other group members are engaged in piggery, pea plantation, tea stall, dairy farming and cabbage farming. They are all working very hard to achieve their financial goals.
