Our 19th Kiva Loan!

Today the Grade Threes were able to loan out some money that was repaid to our Kiva account. We chose to loan money to Ulalia, a farmer from Samoa.
Ulalia is a 36-year-old married woman with 6 children. She has a small plantation and grows yams, taro, taamu and bananas to earn a living. She has been doing this for many years. Ulalia has requested a loan to pay for taro seeds, taamu seeds, a grass-sprayer, chemicals, a knife and a rake for her business.
We think she was a GREAT choice for our latest loan!
