Rebbecca's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farming inputs such as fertilizers and certified seeds to improve her farm and generate more income to support her family and make her dream a reality.

Rebbecca's story

Rebbecca is a hardworking farmer and repeat Kiva borrower from a remote village in the Sotik area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a good-quality education.

Rebbecca has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock, and she also earns some income from a personal business. She never had a formal education and is content with the farming lifestyle. The Sotik area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 20,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seed. This will enable her to grow more vegetables, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Sotik, is very challenging, but Rebbecca feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.

Kindly support this repeat Kiva borrower who has a good credit rating score.
