Nyakahanga Twetungure Group's story

Ruth, 36, is a farmer by profession. The married mother of five mostly grows and sells bananas, tea leaves and sorghum. She has been in this business for the last six years. Where she does her farming in Kihihi, there is always a ready market for the crops she grows. This in a way explains the reason why she decided to start this business. She says this business generates monthly revenue of 180,000 shillings. With this Kiva loan, Ruth plans on purchasing better manure for her farm.
