Kwaedza Simukai Group's story

Kwaedza Simukai is a group of smallholder farmers from Machipanda district in Manica Province. The group is composed of 12 members, six of whom are women. They have worked together for more than three years.

Each member of the group has his own portion of land to produce a variety of veggies, such as tomato, onion, lettuce, garlic, and carrot, as well as grains such as maize, beans and peanuts.

Due to the good climate conditions for agriculture in the high mountains of Machipanda, the members of the group are able to produce enough to feed their families and to sell in the market, as well as to export to nearby countries such as Malawi.

Wilson, the third man from right to the left, is one of the biggest producers among the group. He also has a small shop in his village where he sells both agricultural inputs and surplus.

The group intends to satisfy the upcoming demand for veggies and cereals, so they need more money to buy additional crops. This is why the group is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more cereals and veggies from smaller farmers to sell in the market.

In this group: Joana, Wilson, Daniel, Sarita, Marcos, Rabeca, Salomao, Noemia, Prechassi, Geronimo, Alice, Neva
