Yucabeth's story

Greetings from Nyamira, Kenya! Yucabeth (Yucabeth pictured on her tea farm) is a woman of honesty who has a charming character. She is the mother of lovely children and is a rural smallholder farmer from the area of Nyamira, Kenya.

Yucabeth is married to a fellow farmer. Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities, such as growing tea crops.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in terms of access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers’ yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from her village, like Yucabeth, can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Yucabeth is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizers to improve her tea crop farm. Your loan will enable her to improve her tea crop production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her meet the increasing demand for tea crops in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the conditions of her house.

Yucabeth, her husband and children rely heavily on the goodwill of lenders so that they can achieve their dreams. Take action and lend now!
