Evaline's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to purchase farming inputs to boost the quality of her produce, earn more profits and, as a single mother who is unwilling to see her children suffer, to support them.


Evaline's story

Living in Eldoret is a real struggle, but for a single woman like Evaline, it is even worse. With no one to share day-to-day responsibilities of feeding her children and making important family decisions, Evaline ventured into farming. She is unwilling to let her children suffer and she sustains them using the proceeds of her farming business.

Because of her love for farming, she has even nicknamed one of her cows. Evaline also grows different crops such as maize and vegetables on her farm. The quality of Evaline’s crops has dwindled due to the use of poor farm inputs. This has brought about low demand for her crops and has negatively affected her sales.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic and the kind of inputs being used in the sector today have been upgraded. Therefore, there is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production.

Evaline is seeking a helping hand to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her produce. This will elevate her standard of living, as well as that of her beautiful children.

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 input availability.
