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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs such as seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to improve her harvest and eventually, through profits, to build a modern house.

Susan's story

Susan is a 27-year-old farmer. Although she had a great passion for education, she was unlucky and never secured a chance.

But she showed much interest in farming and grasped all the important skills. Today, she is a farmer who is motivated to get up and work hard by two goals: to improve her housing condition and to offer a good education to her children.

Her main income source is milk from her dairy farm. However, she is also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing bananas, vegetables, fruits and grains.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in inputs availability.

Susan is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers. 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 and improve the quality of life for her family.
