Evaline'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 certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizer, to improve her output, make more sales revenue, and raise the living standards of her family.

Evaline's story

Evaline is a 34-year-old farmer from a remote village in Kenya. She is a skilled farmer with many years of experience under her belt.

Her family's main source of income is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities and growing banana crops.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in input availability.

Evaline is seeking a loan to buy nutrient-rich fertilizer to improve her banana farm. Your loan will enable her to use quality supplies to improve her banana farm's production.

This boost will help her meet the increasing demand for bananas in the market, and it will also generate more income so she may repay her loan and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the condition of her house.

Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya.

Please help this farmer accomplish all her dreams by funding her loan!
