Shalyline's story

Dear Kiva community!

Meet Shalyline again, who is not a first-time Kiva borrower and has previously paid back her loan on time. She is a mother of one who has been practicing agriculture for the last six years. Because of the immense knowledge she has about farming, she commands a lot of respect among other farmers and is viewed as a mentor in her village.

Shalyline lives together with her child in the Eldoret area of Kenya, which is known for maize farming. Her primary income sources are eggs and milk and some personal business she engages in to supplement her meager income. Generating an income through selling her harvest is the part of farming she enjoys most, while availability of labour is a major challenge for her.

Before joining Juhudi Kilimo, Shalyline could not access loans from banks, since she is a woman and a smallholder farmer. She joined Juhudi Kilimo and learned about loan management and agribusiness. She also got to learn about Kiva.

Shalyline is seeking a loan to purchase farm implements. With your loan, she will make her farm activities much easier. This will boost her income and enable her to pay school fees for her children. She waits for your kindness.

Shalyline is very thankful in advance for you taking your precious time to read her profile, and she hopes for your help and support.
