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

A loan helped to buy seeds and grow horticultural crops on her farm.

Alice's story

Thanks to Alice’s drive and courage, her household can lead a respectable life. She is so humble and honest and a very hardworking farmer on this planet Earth. She has a lovely family that she really adores very much. Alice never had the opportunity to advance her education, but this did not kill her dream of wanting to succeed in life.

She started farming and has been doing this for the past six years. Throughout those years, she has gathered much experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips. Alice practices mixed farming on her farm and, through her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs and give her children a good education.

Alice wants to start growing horticultural crops such as tomatoes, cabbages, and carrots on her farm, and she is looking for financial intervention to help her achieve her objective.

Alice is excited to know that the partnership between Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva is meant to elevate the life of enterprising women like her, and she feels relieved that she can get a loan. She has applied for a loan and sent her appreciation to Kiva lenders for their good will.
