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

A loan helped to buy certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to expand her crop farm, and, as a witty mother, generate more revenue to support her family.

Naomi's story

Naomi is 28 years old and lives in the Siongiroi area of Kenya. She is a rural, smallholder farmer and a witty mother who earned her knowledge in farming from her parents. She is determined to pass on this knowledge to her village counterparts in the Siongiroi area of Kenya. The results of her determination are the smiling faces of her children. Through experience based on curiosity and her natural abilities, Naomi has emerged as one of the most respected farmers in her village.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Naomi is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and rich-nutrient fertilizers, to improve her crop farming. Naomi’s remote area has a high demand for food. This means that she could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for crop products that is there.

Naomi feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Naomi believes that this loan will be of help and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for crops. Kindly lend to her!
