Wiliter's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to help a single mom buy farming inputs (good-quality fertilizers and hybrid seeds) to increase production on her farm and raise her income.

Wiliter's story

Wiliter, a single mom (pictured above wearing a red t-shirt with her farming neighbors), does not have higher education or work experience, but lives on her wits and her desire to succeed in life. She is a very hardworking, progressive, and honest farmer from a very remote area of Kenya. The area is very fertile, with favorable weather patterns that support farming activities.

Wiliter has lovely children, and lives with her family on a small piece of land that she treasures. Her primary sources of income are crops and milk Although this humble and industrious mother makes a profit, she faces the challenge of meeting customers' demand in the local market. Therefore, she seeks funds from Kiva lenders to buy fertilizer and quality seeds.

Through this loan, she will double her production and this will increase her income. She then intends to save more money to develop her farm. This loan will help Wiliter realize her dream of getting out of poverty, and she will be able to secure her family's future.
