A loan helped to buy seeds and fertilizers to improve her horticulture farming, increase her output, and make profits to educate her children.

Beatrice's story

Beatrice, pictured above, is a smallholder farmer. She is an honest, hardworking, and loyal person who is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of.

Beatrice has been farming for eight 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 horticulture crops. Beatrice is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Beatrice is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan: to buy seeds and fertilizers to improve her horticulture farming.

Kenya's Litein area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Beatrice could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for horticulture products that is there. Beatrice feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Beatrice believes that this loan will be of help, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for horticulture crops.

Kindly lend to her!
