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

A loan helped to buy different varieties of cereals such as cowpeas, lentils, maize, beans, barley and sorghum to resell and, as a go-getter mom, support her household.

Violet's story

Violet is a married go-getter who lives in Bungoma with her husband and children. She has been farming for the last 12 years. Her main objective in farming is to support her family and educate her children.

In her village, she practices mixed farming. The income she makes from selling milk and eggs is used to meet the basic needs of her household.

Though she has gathered much experience in this business, she is not comfortable with the little amount she earns, since she is the only breadwinner in her household.

Violet has decided to focus more of her attention on farming; however, she needs to boost her income through buying different varieties of cereals (lentils, cowpeas, barley) from local farmers and selling them to her customers and at the local market.

Through this engagement, she will earn a commission that she intends to use to repay the loan and elevate her standard of living.

Through the partnership between Juhudi and Kiva, Violet is relieved that her dreams will be achieved.
