Ann's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm supplies and seeds to improve her horticultural farm.

Ann's story

Ann is a testimony on how small loans can change a person’s life. When she joined Juhudi Kilimo she was not able to afford one meal a day but now she can afford that thanks to her previous loan from Kiva.

Ann works raising animals and horticultural crops, which is work that she began from economic necessity. Ann started practicing mixed farming five years ago; that is, she grows maize and also keeps dairy cows. She has gained so much experience through these years of farming.

Although Ann has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing much of a harvest lately due to the lack of fertilizer and good seeds and the presence of pests and diseases. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm supplies and seeds in order to improve her farm.

With the loan, Ann will be assured of a good harvest, and this will translate into more profits and income. She wants what any mother would want for her children: a great future.

Ann thanks you wholeheartedly in advance.
