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

A loan helped to buy cereals (lentils, cow peas, rice and maize) to sell in her village market.

Sarah's story

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva has helped transform the lives of thousands of small holder farmers and micro entrepreneurs in Kenya.

Sarah (pictured above) feels happy to be part of this great partnership. Sarah has always supported her children just like any caring mother would do. Her aim is to aid them in their studies so that they can change their present and build a prosperous future. Despite personal challenges and her passion for supporting her family as the primary caregiver, Sarah is also a role model, a mentor and an inspiration to many mother farmers in her village due to her resilience.

For the past few years, Sarah has been involved in mixed farming. Her primary sources of income have been growing maize and keeping dairy cows. She has been able to provide nutritious food for her family.

Sarah is requesting a loan to buy cereals (lentils, cow peas, rice and maize) to sell at the market in her village. Her remote village has a ready market for cereals but lacks a sufficient supply of cereals. With this loan, she will be able to sell cereals and meet the local demand.

Kindly and humbly lend to this mother this 2019.
