Rosana's story

Rosana (pictured in her tea plantation) is a farmer, living with her family in a remote village in Nyamira. She is devoted to her farming business, as it is the backbone of her family’s economic survival. She is proud of what she has gained from farming -- the profits from her business have allowed her to earn independence and job security over the last few years. Rosana practices mixed farming on her farm. With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs and to give her children a good education.

Rosana is seeking a loan of 60,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to expand her tea farm. She wants to reap more profits by taking advantage of her area's favorable weather patterns, the good road network in her village, the good soil, and a ready market for tea both locally and internationally. Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva to help hardworking women like Rosana make their farming dreams a reality, through training and loan financing. Please help this woman who has dreams and goals to achieve. Come on, make a loan, and her life will feel worth living. Your loan will help a rural mum develop her tea farming business and secure her family's future.
