Florence's story

Juhudi Kilimo is celebrating mothers and women this month and would like you to be part of this celebration.

Florence is a humble mom whose main dream is to improve the conditions of her home.

Florence has a lovely family that she really adores. She will do anything good to prevent them from ever having to go to bed with hungry stomachs. Florence hails from the Nkubu area of Kenya.

She never got the opportunity to advance her education and get a white-collar job, but that reality did not kill her dream of wanting to succeed in life. She has been farming for the past seven years. Through the years, she has gathered much experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips. Florence practices mixed farming (dairy, animal, and crop farming). With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs.

She is very enterprising and is seeking a loan to buy seeds to start horticulture farming. Florence wants to take advantage of the favorable weather patterns, a good road network in her village, good soil, and a ready market for horticulture products. This will increase her profit.

Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva and the Kiva lender community to help hardworking and honest women like Florence turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Florence hopes that she will improve her living conditions through this loan.

Florence is very thankful in advance.
