Judy's story

Life in Kericho, Kenya, is a struggle for everyone, but for a peasant farmer like Judy, it is even harder. She is a professional farmer and has been in the farming business for many years, during which she has been successful. She grows and sells tea crops and keeps animals.

Judy has been able to purchase cows and she has been able to construct various structures on her farm. These commercial activities place her in a better position to engage in other agricultural businesses, which she does.

Judy dreams that through farming she will be able to pull away from poverty and see to it that all her children successfully complete their studies. She is visionary and keen to ensure that she keeps on progressing.

Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, has extended its services to the remote areas in the Kericho region of Kenya. Its staff is keen to ensure that hardworking women like Judy benefit from loans that should enable them to purchase farming inputs.

Judy, a borrower with good credit history, requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo, which she will use to buy farm inputs such as certified nutrient-rich fertilizers to help improve her tea crop harvest. This loan will enable her to improve her crop production through the use of quality farm inputs.
