I’m certain this was on my list at one point.
Hadn’t been on Kiva for quite some time, but I logged on tonight and made 7 loans bringing me up to 39.
Almost there! I’m so close I almost considered just funding the last few, but I’ll wait until I get some repayments. 1 day ago

I’m certain this was on my list at one point.
Fred, is a father of six with a wife. He is an agriculturalist, who rears mainly cows, a skill he gained from his father who was a predominant cattle-keeper.
He sells some of the cows that are no longer strong enough to give birth as well as the young bulls.
He is applying for a loan so that he will buy good cows and later sell the old and ill-looking ones in his stock. He is hard-working and resilient. He is excited about the partnership with Kiva. 1 week ago
Serathine is age 34. She is married with two children. She would like to use the Kiva loan to support labor costs and buy fertilizers during maize production, in order to increase their production. With profits from her farming she wishes to invest in her business so that in the future she can acquire machines and tractors that will enhance her farming capacity.
The agriculture sector accounts for 37% of Rwanda’s gross domestic product and generates 65% of Rwanda’s export revenue, and employs approximately 90% of Rwandans (as of 2009). Despite the importance of agriculture to Rwandans and their economy, financial institutions view lending to fund agricultural activities as a high-risk proposition because the profitability of these activities is affected by weather, natural disasters, and price fluctuations. For this reason, farmers in Rwanda remain underserved by financial institutions. Urwego Opportunity Bank is expanding into this market and is happy to provide Kiva lenders with the opportunity to support Rwandan farmers. 1 week ago
“Saida is married and has two children. She lives in a small village in the north part of her country. The only source of income for the family is from agricultural activities. They have milking cows and sell milk at local markets. It is hardly enough to provide food for the family.
Saida wants to develop her business but she does not have money to buy more cattle. She is requesting a loan, which she will use to increase the number of cattle. With the profit, she hopes to improve her living condition.” 3 weeks ago
