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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, to improve her tea crop farm to generate income to help her improve her family's quality of life.

Joan's story

As she welcomes 2019 (February), Joan has remained optimistic that this is her year of favor. She is a forward-looking mother who works hard to give her family a better life. She practices dairy and tea farming.

With this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality good fertilizer, which she will use to greatly improve her tea crop production.

Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will assure her a bumper tea crop harvest and increased profits. Joan believes that through this loan, she will be able to give her children a solid educational background.

Unlike local money lenders that charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of small-holder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save.

This loan will play a key role in lifting her out of poverty. Make a $25 loan or more and push Joan’s dream closer to reality.
