Agnes's story

Agnes is an ambitious, 57-year-old lady from the Ekerenyo area, which is a luxuriant tea and banana-producing region in the Nyanza province of Kenya. With five children to raise, animals to look after, and food to cook, Agnes, who is an ever-smiling woman of character and goodwill, has little time to make money to provide financial support for her family. Her primary sources of income are milk, eggs, and some personal businesses that she engages in.

Agnes is seeking a loan of 50,000 KES from Kiva lenders to buy seeds and expand her horticulture business. Horticulture farming offers employment opportunities to thousands of farmers in the Nyamira area, and it’s for this reason that Juhudi has teamed up with Kiva to give Agnes access to a loan that will aid her in growing her horticulture farm into a highly profitable business. With your loan, Agnes’ family will benefit from the growth of the business. This will not only increase their income, but will also improve their living standards.

Lenders, if there is someone you should consider lending to this year, then that person is Agnes!
