KIVA - who did we help this month?
Vincent's story
In the scenic landscapes of Sotik, Vincent, a dedicated and hardworking smallholder farmer, shines as a pillar of strength and determination. As a married man with a deep sense of responsibility, Vincent has made it his mission to provide a brighter future for his family through his agricultural endeavours.

With a few years of farming experience under his belt, Vincent has cultivated his land with care and expertise. His unwavering commitment and diligent efforts have resulted in successful harvests, ensuring a stable income for his household.

Now, Vincent seeks a loan to fulfill his utmost priority: providing a quality education for his children. The funds will be utilized to pay for their school fees, granting them access to educational opportunities that will shape their future.

Vincent's unwavering dedication to his family's well-being, coupled with his proven track record as a smallholder farmer, makes him a deserving candidate for this loan.
We all know and can recite the 4 Way Test - but this explains it in simple detail.
Your Social Club has met and are now planning some great social events for us all.
If you can think of something you would like us to do, then please speak with Chair Marcia Waller and offer to help to organise too.
We are always looking for willing helpers for our social activities.
