Rebecca's story

Dear Kiva community!

Rebecca is very clear about what she wants in life and is determined to get ahead and have a good life. She is a smallholder farmer from Eldoret in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. Rebecca owns a small parcel of farmland. On the farm, she practices mixed farming. This mother keeps dairy animals and grows maize and vegetables. She has ten years of experience in farming.

Rebecca is seeking a loan to buy seeds and expand her horticultural farm. Because of the favourable weather and road conditions, she will have an easy time transporting her horticultural products to the market.

Loans for smallholder farmers with small, irregular income and no solid collateral are hard to come by in Kenya. A few organizations such as Juhudi Kilimo support farmers like Rebecca. Juhudi Kilimo facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers like Rebecca.

Her main dreams are to buy a house and pay for the education of her children.

She really counts on your help and understanding.
