Margaret's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Margaret is a 43-year-old woman. She lives in the Nkubu area of Kenya. Her family is the greatest thing in her life, and something that makes her feel accomplished.

Although she has only farmed for the past six years, Margaret is working hard and learning good farming practices. Although she has faced many obstacles, Margaret has been making great profits in farming. Nkubu is one of the places that has conditions that favor horticulture farming — that is, a good climate, good soil, a transport system, and a market.

Margaret has always wanted to diversify and start horticulture farming, but the biggest challenge she has been facing is the lack of funds to get the business off the ground.

She is requesting a loan to buy seeds and start horticulture farming. Through Juhudi Kilimo, she will be able to secure a loan. With the loan, Margaret intends to buy good quality vegetable seeds, flowers, and potatoes.

This loan will improve her living conditions and secure the future of her children. You can help Margaret to accomplish all these dreams with a loan, so do it now, and get her closer to her goals.

Margaret is making a passionate plea for a loan for her now!
