Monica's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy good quality fertilizer for her coffee farm and the profits from increased sales will help improve her quality of life.

Monica's story

Wonderful community of Kiva:

To lead a comfortable lifestyle has always been the dream of Monica, a smallholder farmer, who works with a lot of care and perseverance to achieve her objective. She owns her beautiful field, which has a spectacular view. She has a rock-solid family. When speaking with her, it becomes obvious that she is a very dynamic, hardworking, helpful woman, and that everything she does is for her family's benefit and well-being.

She makes money selling coffee produce from her farm. She enjoys plowing her farm and watering her plants. With the loan, she plans to buy good-quality fertilizer, which will help increase her coffee productivity on her farm. Increased productivity will allow her to improve her quality of life and standard of living.

Through her training from Juhudi Kilimo, Monica has learned about the culture of saving. She plans to use the increased income to improve her farming. She knows that, with help from Kiva lenders and Juhudi Kilimo, she can achieve all that and more.
