Tecla's story

The dream of having her own home is what motivated Tecla to start her farm in the year 2007. She is a fighter and hard worker who is dedicated to her mixed farm. She is a very hardworking, progressive, and honest farmer from a very remote area of Kenya. The area is very fertile, with favorable weather patterns that support farming activities.

Tecla is happily married with six children and lives with her family on a small piece of land that she treasures. Her primary sources of income are vegetables, eggs, and milk. Although this humble and industrious mother makes a profit, she faces the challenge of meeting customer demands in the local market. Therefore, she seeks funds from Kiva lenders to buy fertilizer and quality seeds.

Through this loan, Tecla will double her production, and this will increase her income. She then intends to save more money to develop her farm. This loan will help Tecla realize her dream of getting out of poverty, and she will be able to secure her family's future.
