Ruth's story

Ruth is among the poorest of the poor in her remote village in Eldoret but this has not made her give up in her quest for a better tomorrow.

Ruth is a smallholder farmer who is an honest, hard-working, loyal person who is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of.

She has been farming for eight years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and horticulture crops. Ruth is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Ruth is not financially comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seed, so that she can plant and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs such as seed to improve her farming.

Kenya's Eldoret area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Ruth could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for crop products. Ruth feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hard-working and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Ruth believes that this loan will be helpful, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for crops.

Kindly lend to her and empower her!
