Janeth's story

Janeth (a mom of five school-going children) is a woman who has experienced poverty but has always triumphed. She is a smart and humble lady who has a great desire to change her life. She lives in the Litein area of Kenya. Life is very challenging for her.

For the past few years, Janeth has been involved in mixed farming. Because of the immense farming knowledge she has, farmers from her village now seek technical advice from her on the best dairy farming techniques. Janeth is the primary breadwinner in her family, and she carries out her responsibilities with great passion. She is pushing to make great efforts in attending to her duties so that her children can have a comfortable life.

Although this humble and persistent mother makes a profit, she faces the challenge of not being able to produce enough to meet the ready market that is available. Therefore, she is seeking funds from Kiva lenders to buy farm inputs like good fertilizer, so that she can expand her tea crop farm. Through this loan, Janeth will double her tea crop production, and this will translate into increased income. She then intends to save more money in the future so that she can develop her farming. This loan will help Janeth to realize her dream of getting out of poverty, and she will be able to secure her family's future.
