Shelmith'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 seeds, to improve her crop farming and help an ever smiling go-getter mom improve her living condition.

Shelmith's story

Despite the ups and downs that she goes through in her life, Shelmith has always kept her smile alive. Shelmith has been farming for the past ten years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered to be among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk and different crops. Shelmith is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Shelmith is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and improve her crop farming. Kenya's Nyahururu area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food.

This means that Shelmith could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for different crops. Shelmith feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Shelmith believes that this loan will be of help, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for crops. Kindly lend to her!
