Florence
Meet Florence, 51, a mother of four children. She has been practising farming for a year now in Nyamira, Kenya. To earn a decent living, she sells milk and food crops to clients in the local market. She also has her hand on other personal businesses to make an extra penny. What Florence enjoys most in the world is serving happy repeat customers! Her biggest challenge is grazing her cow due to unavailability of land with green pasture.

When she joined Juhudi and learnt about Kiva, she was impressed by the interest terms and knew her life was changed. She admits school fees have been taking up most of her income and giving her sleepless nights. The only way out is to increase her asset base and generate more income to take care of the expenses.

Florence is seeking a loan to purchase poultry. It is easy for her to raise poultry on her small land. There is also a great demand for poultry products in Nyamira. Florence has the will to succeed. Donate something small to help Florence support her family and her business.
