Grace's story

Meet Grace(pictured with one of her child), a woman who has always struggled to make her dreams come true. She knows that this will not be possible through magic, but rather through hard work and determination.

Grace is a married woman who loves and takes great care of her family. She was born in a family where farming skills were passed on from one generation to another. She did not have any alternative way of earning an income, so she ventured into farming. Through continuous involvement in crop and animal farming, Grace is able to provide her family with meals at least once a day.

The Kerugoya area has favorable conditions for horticultural farming, and that is why Grace is seeking a loan to buy high quality seedlings to start it. Because of good roads, a good climate, and a good transportation network, Grace is sure that she will reap maximum profits and be able to increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kerugoya is very challenging, but she is relieved to know there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her.

Kindly support her with a loan during this 2019 season!
