Brenda's story

Brenda is married and lives in the remote area of Kericho with her husband and children. Here she practices dairy and poultry farming. She also grows a variety of crops for domestic consumption. Brenda uses the money she makes from selling milk and eggs to meet the basic needs of her household. Though she makes some income she is not comfortable with the little amount she earns since she is the only breadwinner in her household. Brenda has decided to focus more of her attention on farming. She is thinking of growing a variety of crops for commercial purposes, including maize, potatoes and cabbage. But she needs a loan to buy fertilizers and chemicals to use on her farm. Brenda has learned of Juhudi Kilimo in her area and its partnership with Kiva and is seeking a loan to help transform her idea into action. She thanks her lenders in advance for their support.

This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals and farming equipment.
