A loan of $575 helped Sunaphula purchase two cows for her dairy farm. Thanks to lenders like you, it's been possible for Sunaphula to earn a living by selling the milk produced by the cows.
Food brings us together as a human family across all cultures – and most of the world’s food still comes from small-scale farms and other small businesses.
Thanks for everything you do to support small-scale farmers by lending to Kiva borrowers around the world!
