Florence's story

Florence’s curiosity and natural abilities made her a successful farmer. She works hard to meet the demands of her small family as well as her farm. Florence has been working on her farm for the past few years. Through farming, she is able to meet the basic needs of her family. The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs which means that their yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Nandi Hills like Florence now can buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Florence is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, herbicide, and pesticide. Her loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help Florence fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay her loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family. To others, it might just be a mere loan, but to Florence it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season of changing her life.

Kindly lend to her today so that she can close the month on a good note.
