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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs such as hybrid seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to help a mom to improve her farm yields and her family's quality of life.

Rose's story

Rose is a mom who is ever-smiling and has one of best smiles in her village. She is a mother of lovely children and is a rural smallholder farmer from the Matuu area of Kenya. Her main income source is milk from their dairy farm and also crop farming. However, she is also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing crops.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs such as fertilizers, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers like Rose from her village can now buy important agricultural inputs such as fertilizers for use on their farms.

Rose is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality fertilizer. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family. Rose hopes to improve the conditions of her house.

Help this mother to accomplish all her dreams with just a loan and help her keep her beautiful smile!
