Judith's story

Hello Kiva lenders,

Judith is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Kitale area of Kenya, a region that provides farmers with the best climatic conditions. Judith has been able to provide her children with a good foundation by sending them to school, thanks to her selflessness and tireless nature.

Judith has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She also runs a personal business to boost her income. Judith does not complain of lacking a formal education but depends on her technical skills and experience in agriculture.

Judith requested a loan of 50,000 KES, which she will use to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides to enable her to grow more vegetables, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a woman smallholder farmer, accessing funds in her Kitale area is not an easy task. One needs to have solid collateral or regular cash flows.Judith feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that helps enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Her life goals are to become independent, support her family by herself, secure her children’s future, and build a nice house.
