Josephine's story

Josephine is standing strong today due to the effort that she put in farming after she started in this business fifteen years ago. Her curiosity and natural abilities have made her a successful farmer. She works hard to meet the demands of her small family, (husband and children) as well as her farm requirements. Through farming, Josephine is able to meet the basic needs of her family. She also owns a small shop.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning those farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya.

Through these financial services, farmers from Kenyenya like Josephine now can buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms. Josephine 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 help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family.

To others it might just be a mere loan, but to Josephine it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season of changing her life. Kindly lend to her today.
