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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs and hire labor in order to grow more crops on her horticulture farm.

Irine's story

Dear Kiva community!

Meet Irine, a smallholder farmer from a remote village in the Kericho area of Kenya. She started farming five years ago on a small plot she acquired. On the farm, she has dairy cows and a small garden.

Irine is seeking a KES 45,000 loan, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and hire labor in order to grow more crops on the horticulture farm. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business.

With your help, Irine will be able to settle the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profit will be plowed back into the business to fuel growth as she sets a good foundation for her children.

Irine is really thankful in advance for your attention and help.

Your loan would enable a smallholder woman to pursue her dreams and attain economic stability.
