I just helped to micro-finance a loan to a group in Rwanda to help produce food - Pay It Forward

Ancille is 51 years old and is a widow. She has six children between the ages of 4 and 16 years. Ancille is the president of a group called “Umucyo.” She is the first person on the left side of the photo. Ancille sells bananas, and has been working for two years.

Ancille and her group have requested a loan from Kiva lenders in order to purchase more bananas. With the profits from this loan, Ancille and her team would like to satisfy the basic needs of their families, and start saving for their children.
