but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve the quality of her farm products, and as a focused woman, increase her income.


Loice's story

Agriculture is the backbone of Kenya’s economic growth through poverty reduction and creation of employment. For this reason, there is a need to invest in small-holder farmers such as Loice, since they play a major role in transforming the economy.

Her curiosity and natural abilities have made her a successful farmer. She works hard to meet the demands of her small family, including her children, as well as her farm requirements. Loice has made her life meaningful through agricultural production.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in inputs availability than earlier before.

Loice is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve the quality of her farm products and increase her income. To others, it might just be a mere loan, but to Loice, it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season of changing her life.
