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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs (good-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds) to produce more on her farm and shift her level of income so that she can comfortably sustain her family.


Jasaline's story

Meet Jasaline (a 28-year-old mom of two children). She has been practicing agriculture for the last few years. Because of the immense knowledge she has about farming, she commands a lot of respect among other farmers and is viewed as a mentor in her village.

Jasaline lives in the Kapcherop area of Kenya, which is known for maize farming. Her primary income sources are crops and milk.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is far below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement of input availability than before.

Jasaline is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs (good-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds) to produce more on her farm. This will shift her level of income so that she can comfortably sustain her family.

This loan is therefore an opportunity that she never had before. Her irregular income and lack of collateral security were the main drawbacks limiting her from accessing a loan in commercial banks.

Thanks to Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, the life of Jasaline and her family will be changed through this loan.
