Jane's story

Jane is a compassionate, capable, and enterprising woman who is 52 years of age. This energetic mother lives together with her husband and children in a rural area in Kenyenya. Her husband is also a farmer and they co-operate together to make ends meet.

Her family’s main source of income is selling milk produced by their dairy animals. Jane also engages in other agricultural activities, all of which are aimed at improving their standard of living.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seeds allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement on inputs availability.

Jane is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and rich-nutrient fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to improve her production. 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. She hopes to improve the conditions of her house.
