Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Hasifa's Group's story

N. Hasifa is the leader of Balikudembe group in Buwola. She is a polite woman and a married mother of 5 children aged 14-2 years, of whom 4 are in primary school. She is a business-lady selling "nakati" (green vegetables) that she grows in her gardens; she also keeps sheep and goats for meat and wants to expand her farm.

Her customers for the green vegetables are located all over Lugazi and she is lucky that her customers come to her for the purchases, hence allowing her to save on transport. She is able to make weekly profits of 30,000/= per week (minus the sale of animals). Hasifa needs a loan to top up with her current savings and buy another piece of land to expand her farming.

In this group: Hasifa, Josephine, Rehema, Harriet, Sarah, Milly, Grace, Betty, Fred, Christine, Robinah
