Agnes's story

Agnes is a 35-year-old single mom of three school-going children from rural Kerugoya, Kenya, who wants a bright future for her children.

Agnes works on her land and sells her crops at the local market. She decided to start mixed farming with the hope of giving her family a better quality of life. Her desire to get ahead is admirable, because despite her age and the obstacles she has experienced, she doesn't reduce her efforts to achieve her objective. What she sets out to do, she achieves. With the profits from her farm, Agnes has managed to take care of her family's needs and also give her children a good education.

Agnes wants to reap more profits by taking advantage of her area's favorable weather patterns, the good road network in her village, good soil and ready market for horticultural products. As such, she is seeking a loan from Juhudi Kilimo in the amount of KES 60,000 to buy seeds to start horticultural farming on her farm. Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva to help hardworking single moms like Agnes make their farming dreams come to reality, through training and loan financing.

Please help this single woman, who has dreams and goals to achieve.
