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

A loan helped to purchase farm inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizer and certified seeds to boost her yields and improve her sales.

Rodah's story

Rodah has been very hardworking in her business, eliminating any hindrances or distractions to her goals. She raises dairy cows and poultry on her small portion of land. She also grows different varieties of vegetables for commercial purposes. This has been her only way of sustaining her family for the last 10 years. Access to modern-quality seeds and fertilizer is the key ingredient of agricultural success. However, in Kenya, a developing and third-world country, fertilizer and seed 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 in input availability.

Rodah is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich 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, including educating her children. She also hopes to improve the conditions of her household. Lenders, kindly do not hesitate; hit that lend button on your computer and help this mother with a loan!
