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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides in order to improve the quality of her farm products and increase her income.

Judy's story

This is Judy, a mum who desires to see her family prosper. Judy is a very hardworking and self-driven mother. She is known in her village for her undying and resilient nature. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to provide her family with good care.

On her farm, she practices mixed farming. This kind mother keeps dairy animals and grows a variety of crops and vegetables. She has nine years of experience in farming.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. 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 the availability of inputs.

Judy has decided to apply for a loan that she will use to buy farming inputs (certified and nutrient-rich fertilizer) that she intends to use on her farm.

This loan will surely change her life, as she will be able to produce more, and hence shift her income level. The impact of this loan will be all smiles on the faces of her children.

Transformation in her life will be marked by your good will.
