Florence's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and rich-nutrient fertilizers.

Florence's story

Florence has wide experience in crop and dairy farming. Her determination to persist without giving up hope is her major weapon in fighting poverty.

She has mastered farming activities such as growing, caring, and harvesting and earns income from her crops as well. She is a mom who has passion for her work and therefore inspires her village mates and her customers.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural success. However, in Kenya, a developing 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 than before.

Florence is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and rich-nutrient 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. This mom would certainly appreciate your support.
