Everlyne's story

Wonderful community of Kiva, Everlyne (the only woman in the picture above alongside her farming neighbours) has always dreamed of a more comfortable lifestyle. She is a smallholder farmer who works with a lot of care and perseverance to achieve her objectives. Today, she has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock; she also earns additional income from a personal business.

Everlyne lives in Kenyenya with her husband and children. In this region, job opportunities are very scarce and the level of poverty has hit the moon. She is involved in dairy and maize/corn farming. Her work brings home important income. She gets help with the work from her family members.

Everlyne is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family.

Everlyne is optimistic that this year's harvest will be better than last season's. Income from her dairy business will be used to make initial loan repayments until the crops are harvested and sold. Most microfinance organizations, particularly in her area of Kenya, don’t give loans to smallholder farmers, but Juhudi Kilimo is standing out and is different. Juhudi Kilimo is expanding into this market and is happy to provide Kiva lenders with the opportunity to support Kenyan smallholder farmers.

Everlyne is very thankful for your warm consideration.
