Benedicta's story

Hello Kiva lenders! Meet Benedicta, from the very fertile Nkubu area of Kenya. She is a proud mother of two angelic-looking children whom she really adores and cherishes. Other than operating some small businesses, Benedicta is a very hardworking farmer who has been practicing mixed farming for the past five years. She grows maize and keeps dairy cows and has gained much experience over the years.

Through these activities, Benedicta has been able to earn a decent and honest income. Because of her passion for farming, Benedicta has even nicknamed one of her cows. She really enjoys taking care of her cows. Benedicta wakes up early and goes to sleep very late every day to give her family a decent living and her children proper education.

Benedicta is requesting a loan to buy farm implements, seeds and fertilizer. Although she has been earning profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing as much of a harvest because of the lack of fertilizer and good seeds and the presence of pests and diseases. Benedicta will use her loan to be assured of a bumper harvest which will translate into more profits and cash. Through the use of good seeds and fertilizer, she will increase her profit margins. Benedicta will use her loan to expand her farm. She sees a lot of room for improvement and growth but she is lacking the money to push for positive change. With your loan, she will make enough income to take care of her family and other farming expenses.

Benedicta has many dreams but the main one is to make her farming business successful so that one day her children can inherit it and keep it so they have something to provide for themselves. You can help Benedicta to accomplish her dreams and goals with just a loan.
