KIVA Loan 77
KIVA loan # 77 goes to Vivian, a 21-year-old woman who is always full of smiles. She has had to overcome a lot of adversity in her life. However, she has always had the strength to overcome it and is moving forward with her two children.
Vivian is very hardworking and a go-getter. She hails from Kiptere, a remote village in the Kericho area of Kenya, a country where the average annual income is $1,800. Her primary sources of income are vegetable crops and animal farming. She also earns some income through a personal business. Vivian is content with the farming way of life.
Vivian is a very enterprising woman, and although she never had any formal education or formal employment, she has always worked hard on her farm and she has always assured her children and family have had a decent meal.
The Kiptere Kericho area has favourable conditions for farming, and that is why Vivian sought a loan from KIVA to buy seeds and start farming as a business. With good roads, a good climate, and a good transportation network, she is sure that she will be able to be a successful farmer.
We are glad to be able to help Vivian so that she can succeed as a farmer! It’s a great feeling. Try it. Loaning $25.00 to a business person in the Third World through KIVA will give you a glow that’s hard to get any other way.
