Teresa's story

Wonderful people of the globe, Juhudi Kilimo is working hard to help mothers in Kenya to access funds to transform their lives.

Meet Teresa, a rural mum who lives in Nyamira, Kenya. Considering how things were tough for her and her family when she was growing up, Teresa feels that she has come a long way to being an independent woman. Living a stable and independent life is the goal Teresa has set for herself this season.

As the sole breadwinner in her household, this woman works hard to ensure that she achieves her goals and objectives. Her major source of income is selling her farm produce such as bananas and corn.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seeds allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in inputs availability over before.

Teresa will use this loan to purchase farm inputs such as certified nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve her banana crop farm and grow more yield to increase her income. Please lend to this industrious woman so that she can save for her 2 children's education.
