Selina's story

When the moon disappears in the clouds to pave way for the piercing African sun. most people are asleep, but this is not the case for Selina, who you will find awake and who has started her day preparing her family.

When her family is ready for the day, she picks up her farming tools and heads to her farm.

Selina is one of the most respected women in Siongiroi in the Great Rift Valley region of Kenya. She is a very hardworking and self-driven mother. She is known in her village because of her resilience and never-dying nature.

When she learned about Juhudi and Kiva from a Juhudi Kilimo loan officer, she became interested in the good work that Kiva does to support smallholder farmers. She was happy that she has reliable micro-financing and attended regular training sessions to ensure that she learned about savings and loans.

On her farm, she has been keeping dairy cows and nurturing the growth of various crops. The main challenge that this enterprising woman has often complained of is the high cost of farming inputs in her area. She has requested this loan so that she can buy quality farming inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides, which she plans to use on her farm. With these inputs, Selina will be assured of a good harvest, which will consequently reflect in her pocket.

Lenders! If there is someone you should lend to, then that person is Selina.
