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

A loan helped to buy quality farm inputs such as certified seeds and fertilizers, to help improve his crop production and use the profits to improve his living standards.

Alfred's story

Hello, lenders. Meet Alfred, a farmer from a remote village situated in Litein-Kenya. The living conditions in this area are tough because there is neither clean water nor electrical connections.

For twelve years, his primary source of income has been milk, eggs, and horticultural produce. Alfred is a responsible and diligent small farmer from a remote village.

Alfred is on his knees humbly seeking a loan to purchase quality farm inputs. He will use the money from the loan to buy important supplies such as quality seeds and fertilizers so that he can manage weeds and preserve harvested produce.

He is optimistic that this year's harvest will be better than last season's. Income from the dairy business will be used to make initial loan repayments until the crops are harvested and sold. Most microfinance organizations, particularly in his remote area of Kenya, don’t give loans to small farmers, but Juhudi Kilimo is different. Juhudi Kilimo is expanding into this market and is happy to provide Kiva lenders with the opportunity to support Kenyan small farmers.

Be inspired, light up a life and kindly empower a smallholder Kenyan farmer through a loan!
