Christy's Group's story
Christy is 54 years old and a mother to 5 children. She is a widow. As a teacher in the rural primary school she engages in different business all year round to meet up with her family responsibility. In this part of the world, teachers especially primary school teachers in rural areas face salary delay for months and if one is not engaged in other life sustaining activities, life becomes tougher. For Christy and her fellow teachers, they joined Nke-Anyi cooperative and in the past have enjoyed the palm oil storage loan product. A portion of this loan will enable Christy to purchase fresh palm fruits and process for the market. She spends her weekends at the mill and also evenings after school hours. Her children are also supporting her with the work. Christy and her group members appreciates all Kiva lenders that show interest in supporting their loan
