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

A loan helped to buy seeds to expand her horticulture farm and use the profits from her farm to support her family.

Milkah's story

Meet Milkah from Nyahururu, a third-time Kiva borrower with a perfect credit history!

Milkah is a mother and a farmer who owns a small parcel of farmland. On the farm, she practices mixed farming. She keeps dairy animals like sheep. In addition, she grows maize and vegetables. She has 11 years of experience in farming under her belt.

Milkah is seeking a loan to buy seeds and expand her horticultural farm. Because of the favorable weather and road conditions, she will have an easy time transporting her horticultural products to the market.

Milkah's dream is to buy a house and pay for her children's education. She is counting on your help and understanding. Milkah is really humbled to apply for her third Kiva loan.

Loans for smallholder farmers with small, irregular income and no solid collateral are hard to come by in Kenya. A few organizations such as Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva lenders support farmers like Milkah.
