Janerose's story

Janerose is married and lives in a humble village in Kitale. This enterprising woman - 50 years of age - has the creative capacity to recognize and pursue opportunities. She possesses strong selling skills and is both persuasive and persistent. She sells vegetables and maize that she harvests on her farm. She also sells milk and eggs from her dairy cows and poultry, respectively. Crop production is at the center of her heart since she loves to cultivate her land.

The biggest problem that Janerose has to deal with is the high cost of farm inputs that are necessary to improve the quality of her produce. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kitale. Through these financial services, farmers can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms. Janerose has borrowed this loan to buy farm inputs (fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides) to use in her farm. This will enable her to be able improve the quality of her produce. She will make more profits to repay the loan and be able to improve her life.

Janerose feels grateful for this opportunity and appreciates her lenders for their support.
