Miriam's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Miriam is a smallholder farmer. She is an honest, hardworking, loyal person who is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of.

Miriam has been farming for eight years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and horticulture crops. Miriam is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Miriam is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds, so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and improve her farming.

Kenya's Eldoret area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Miriam could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for crop products that is there. Miriam feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Miriam believes that this loan will be helpful, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for crops.

Kindly lend to her!
