Purity's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped Purity to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable her to grow more vegetables.

Purity's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Purity is a hard-working farmer from a remote village in the Kapsowar area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a good quality education.

Purity has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business. She never had a formal education and is content with the farming lifestyle.

The Kapsowar area is a favorable one for farming, so Purity is seeking a KES 30,000 loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable her to grow more vegetables, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Kapsowar, is very challenging, but Purity feels relieved knowing there are institutions, such as Kiva, that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.

Purity is really thankful in advance for your attention and help.

Light up a life this holiday season and kindly give a gift of opportunity to a smallholder farmer in Kenya!
