Janet's story

Janet is a woman who always believes that life’s ups and downs should not be viewed as the end, but as an opportunity to learn to improve in life. She is a progressive woman who, despite being faced with serious misfortune, refused to give up.

Janet has children and lives in the Kapsowar area of Kenya. Although she has only farmed for the past few years, she is working hard and learning good farming practices. The biggest constraint to Janet's success is the use of poor-quality fertilizers and a lack of certified seeds.

Janet requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo, which she will use to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers. This loan will enable her to improve her production and fill the increasing demand for food in the market. In the process, Janet will generate more income to repay the loan and elevate her family's quality of life.

Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers in Kapsowar now can buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.
