A loan helped to buy quality inputs, including certified seed and fertilizer, in order to produce quality crops, stock her market and increase her family income.

Cynthia's story

Cynthia is 60 years old and married. She lives with her husband in Manica Province.

Cynthia and her husband have 25 hectares of land that they have been farming for more than 20 years. Their main crops are fruits and vegetables. Cynthia also has a big shop where she sells her crops at a price lower than the market. Cynthia therefore has regular clients year-round. Because her farm is big, Cynthia needs workers to help her in sowing and harvesting time. Thus she helps young people in her community get employment and gain experience in agribusiness.

Cynthia wants to expand her production this season. She needs to buy a large amount of inputs like certified seed and fertilizer in order to ensure good quality crops. She is therefore requesting a Kiva loan to buy the necessary inputs to produce quality produce, stock her market and increase her family income.

This will be Cynthia's second Kiva loan, and she repaid her previous on time.

This loan is special because:

It allows farmers access to new markets and agricultural resources.
