Faith's story

Hello wonderful community of Kiva, get to know this Faith. She is one of the few respected women farmers in her village for her unquestionable understanding of all agricultural enterprises. At school, agriculture became her favorite subject.

Faith is married to an energetic and hardworking husband. She is a dairy and crop farmer. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Nkubu, like Faith, can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Faith is seeking a KES 20,000 loan, which she will use to purchase farm inputs and pay for hired labor in order to grow more crops on the horticulture farm. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business.

With your help, Faith will be able to manage the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profit will be put back into the business to fuel growth as she sets a good foundation for her children. Faith is really thankful in advance for your attention and help. Support this happy mother and lend now.
