Agnes's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy seeds and expand her tea farming business to generate more profit and educate her children.

Agnes's story

Agnes is a motivated smallholder farmer from the Nyamira area. This is a luxuriant tea and maize-producing region in the Nyanza province of Kenya. She is blessed with beautiful children to raise and educate. Agnes has little time to make money to provide financial support for her family. Her primary sources of income are milk, tea farming, eggs, and some personal businesses that she engages in.

Agnes is seeking a 130,000 KES loan from Kiva lenders to buy seeds and expand her tea farming business. Tea farming offers employment opportunities to thousands of smallholder farmers in the Nyamira area, and it’s for this reason that Juhudi has teamed up with Kiva to gain access to a loan that will help her to expand her tea farm into a highly profitable business.

With your loan, Agnes’s family will benefit from the growth of her business. This will not only increase their income, but will also improve their living standards. Lenders, if there is someone you should consider lending to this year, that person is Agnes!

Agnes is so thankful to have a chance like this Kiva loan. She hopes for your help.
