Beth's story

Wonderful Kiva lenders,

Pictured above is Beth, who is middle-aged. Her love for her family is undeniable. Having grown up in a very humble background, Beth used to observe her parents and neighbours farming and learned various skills from them.

Her primary source of income is milk from her cows. She also grows maize on their farm. Although her life is full of twists and turns, she injects passion and determination in her work in anticipation of future prosperity.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have always skyrocketed. Some farmers, and especially women, end up in hopelessness and despondency, and lack the morale to invest in agriculture.

Beth is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers to improve the quality of her farm products and attract more buyers, leading to more profits. To others, it might just be a mere loan, but to Beth, it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season to change her life.
