A loan helped to buy fertilizers, pesticides and good quality seeds.

Nelly's story

Nelly is a youthful smallholder farmer. She is a wise farmer whom her neighbors and fellow farmers respect as a mentor. She farms a small plot of land in the green, lush hills near Eldoret, in the Rift valley region of Kenya. Like many other farmers in the region, maize is a staple crop which she has been planting for as long as she can remember.

With time, the fertility of her land has started to dwindle and whenever she plants maize, the yields go down with each season. Nelly has also been affected by weeds.

Today, Nelly is requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders to buy fertilizers, pesticides and good quality seeds. Through this loan, Nelly is going to increase her crop production, and this will translate to an improved income level. This loan will change the living standards of Nelly, and there is no doubt that if you invest in her, 2017 will be a great year for her.

Nelly is very grateful in advance for your help and contribution.
