Lydia's story

Lydia (pictured above holding the ropes of her cows with her farming neighbor) thanks the Kiva community for their support in transforming the lives of small-holder farmers in Kenya through loans.

Lydia is a small-holder farmer whose skills in agribusiness are unquestionable with the immense knowledge that she has gained over the last ten years in farming. This was part of her expectation when she began farming, and she, therefore, feels accomplished and wishes to continue farming for the rest of her life.

Lydia lives together with her husband and children, who are her greatest motivators and the reason behind her selflessness and her tireless efforts. Her primary income sources are from crop farming, eggs, milk, and some personal business she engages in to supplement her meager income. She also keeps a dairy cow. She enjoys generating income out of her own efforts.

Lydia is seeking a loan to purchase farm tools and equipment. She wants to expand her crop-production enterprise so she can generate more income. With your loan, she will make her farm activities much easier. This will boost her income and enable her to pay school fees for her children.

Be inspired and kindly lend to her!
