Sheila's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Sheila is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Molo 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.

Sheila has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock; she also earns some income from a personal business. She never had a formal education and is content with the farming lifestyle.

The Molo area is a favorable one for farming, but the major problem is unreliable rainfall. Sheila wants to change this, and she is requesting a loan to buy a water tank. The tank will enable her to harvest the rainwater that otherwise would go to waste during the rainy seasons. Through this loan, her farm will be assured of constant irrigation, and hence, increased productivity.

Sheila is always working to improve her family’s living standards.
