A loan helped to buy seeds and fertilizer.


Jane's story

Jane is grateful to Kiva and the lenders for the previous loan that enabled her to buy more maize for her posho mill. This enabled her to meet her customers' demands, hence increasing her income. She used the increased income to pay school fees for her children.

She is borrowing an additional Kiva loan to buy seeds and fertilizer for her diversified maize and bean farming. She hopes this will increase her production, hence increasing her income. She will use the anticipated income to provide food and clothing for her family.

She is grateful to Kiva and the lenders for the financial support and promises to repay promptly.


This loan is special because:

It provides startup loans to risky businesses and underserved people.
