Emily's story

Emily is a joyful woman who is always smiling regardless of whether she is going through good or bad times. Thanks to Emily's perseverance and courage, her family leads a respectable life. She is so humble and honest and a very hardworking mother. Emily never had the opportunity to advance her education, but this did not kill her dream of wanting to succeed in life.

Emily started farming and has been doing this for the past six years. Throughout the years, she has gathered much experience learning all the farming techniques. Emily practices mixed farming, and with the profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs and give her children a good education. She believes that education is the key to success.

The major challenge that Emily faces as a remote farmer is the limited access to farming inputs due to their high costs and abundance. Through Juhudi’s partnership with Kiva, farmers from Kenyenya like Emily can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms. Emily is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will also help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and generate more income to repay the loan debt and elevate the quality of life for her family. She is very happy for this opportunity.
