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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and quality fertilizers to help improve her crop production and use the profits to build a modern house.

Rose's story

Meet Rose, a single mom who is a repeat Kiva borrower with a good credit history

Rose is the mother of lovely children and is a rural smallholder farmer from the Eldoret area of Kenya.

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

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in terms of access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from her village like Rose can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Rose is kindly and humbly seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs.

This intervention will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the conditions of her house.

Help this go-getter mother to accomplish all her dreams with just a loan!
