Naum's story

Wonderful kiva lenders,

Get to know Naum from Kericho, the largest tea-producing region in Kenya. As for Naum, she made a decision fifteen years ago to wake up from her rest and do something to empower herself as a young mother.

Success has become her portion today. The rich soil of Kericho enables her to continuously make bumper harvests. Her primary source of income has been selling milk, eggs, maize, and a variety of food crops. These ventures have allowed her to earn a decent income.

Naum passionately loves horticulture farming, but the biggest challenge she faces is the lack of funds. She has applied for this loan so that she can buy a motorbike, which she intends to use to transport farm products to the market.

In Naum's village poor infrastructure makes it extremely difficult to transport produce to the market, making farmers expose their goods to middlemen and incur huge losses. With her own motorbike, Naum will hire a rider to carry produce to the market and sell it at higher prices. This will enable her to comfortably repay her loan and elevate her living standards.

This loan is therefore an opportunity for Naum to improve her life. Lend to Naum today and help her to brighten her future.
