Florence's story

Hello wonderful Kiva lenders!

Florence, 32, has been farming for the past 9 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 crops. Florence is very passionate about farming, and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes profits from farming, she is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell them after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan, to buy farm inputs such as seeds.

Kenya's Chuka area, one of the country's populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Florence could increase her profits and satisfy the demand that is there.

She also believes that the extra income she earns will enable a change in her life and increase her business. Increased profits will allow Florence to repay this loan and secure the future of her aging parents and school-going children.
