Esther's story

Dear Kiva community!

Esther 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 Kerugoya in the central region of Kenya. Esther 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 10 years of experience in farming.

Esther is seeking a loan to expand her horticultural farm. Loans for smallholder farmers with irregular income and no solid collateral are hard to come by in Kenya. A few organizations such as Juhudi Kilimo support farmers like Esther.

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

Juhudi Kilimo facilitates loans that empower smallholder farmers like Esther. Her main dreams are to buy a house and pay for the education of her children.

She really counts on your help and understanding.

Esther is very thankful for this loan to support such an empowerment of a female farmer.
