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


A loan helped to pay for farm inputs, such as fertilizers rich in nutrients and certified seeds to improve her farm yield, generate more revenue and lay a good foundation for her children.


Florence's story

Florence (a mother of three school going children) lives in a typical village in the Kitui area of Kenya, where people suffer from poverty. Most people who live in this area are smallholder farmers and Florence has been practicing farming on a small, inherited piece of land for the past few years.

Unlike most microfinances in Kenya that have imposed very complicated procedures in funds acquisition, thereby discouraging smallholder farmers, Juhudi Kilimo is working closely with Kiva to make loan acquisition for a smallholder farmer easy and convenient. Through this intervention, the movement of funds in rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty.

Florence is seeking a loan to pay for farm inputs, such as fertilizers rich in nutrients and certified seeds to improve her farm yield, generate more revenue and lay a good foundation for her children.

Helping Florence through lending will help lift her family from the chains of poverty!
