Gladys's story

Dear Kiva community!

Meet Gladys, a smallholder farmer from a remote village in the Nyamira, in the Nyanza area of Kenya. Gladys is married and blessed with a lovely family. Gladys has been in the business of farming for a long time. She normally engages in milk production, raises different crops and bananas. Her healthy cows are good producers of milk.

Gladys is seeking a KES 40,000 loan, which she will use to purchase farm inputs, such as fertilizers, to help improve her banana farm.

With the good climatic conditions and good infrastructure in her region, she believes she will be able to produce enough bananas. She will transport the banana produce to her local market and sell it to make profits.

With your intervention, Gladys can afford the high cost of farm inputs necessary for her enterprise.

Your loan will go a long way in changing the life of this woman smallholder farmer.
