Emmy's story

Get to know Emmy (pictured above, together with her better half). Emmy is a determined and devoted woman who resides in a remote village in the Eldoret region of Kenya. She is the primary breadwinner in her household and carries out her responsibilities passionately.

Although Emmy never had a chance to enroll in any institution of higher learning, she continues her efforts to get ahead and lead a comfortable lifestyle. She is blessed with children who love and adore their mum. She says that ensuring that her children never lack a thing on the table is what motivates her to work tirelessly.

Emmy enjoys the fact that her enterprise was able to break even and that she is now able to provide a meal for her family at least three times in a single day. Her dairy farming and organic farming methods have enabled her to give her children the best a caring mum can afford for her children.

Emmy is borrowing a loan so that she can start poultry farming and increase her profits. The cost of educating all her children has brought about the need to expand her business, and therefore she is appealing to the Kiva community for a loan that she has promised to repay. She thanks her lenders in advance.
