Fridah'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 and fertilizers to improve her farming business and make her bananas the talk of the town where she lives.

Fridah's story

It is the hope of every farmer across the globe to make profits out of their business. And yes, this can be possible through the aid of compassionate Kiva lenders. Fridah is a humble woman who lives in peaceful coexistence with her neighbours. Considering how things were tough for her and her family when she was growing up, Fridah feels that she has come a long way to be an independent woman.

She believes Kiva is the solution to her hunger for success. The biggest problem that farmers from Chuka face is the huge deficit in terms of access to agricultural inputs. This means these farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholder farmers around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Chuka, like Fridah, can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Fridah is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers to improve her farming business. Your loan will enable her to improve her production. Helping Fridah through lending will help lift her family from the chains of poverty!
