Mary's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy quality farm inputs and improve her crop production.

Mary's story

Mary is a smallholder farmer practicing dairy, poultry and crop farming to make a living. She enjoys farming for it is her means of securing the basic necessities of life.

In the Molo area of Kenya, where Mary is from, most people (over 95% of the population) depend on agriculture for a living. Their biggest challenge is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers in Molo now can buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Mary is humbly seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, herbicides and pesticides. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through use of quality farm inputs.

This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and elevate the quality of life for her family. Mary wants to begin the ninth month of the year on a high note and on a good footing.

Mary is very thankful in advance for your understanding and empowerment.
