Salome's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a single mom to buy certified seeds and high-quality fertilizer to improve her yields and generate more income so she can improve her family's quality of life.

Salome's story

Salome, a single mom of three school-going children, has the curiosity and natural abilities that have made her a successful farmer. She works hard to meet the demands of her small family, as well as her farm requirements.

Salome has been working on her farm for many years. Through farming, Salome is able to meet the basic needs of her family.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning those 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 Kapcherop like Salome now can buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Salome is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and high-quality fertilizer.

Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family.

To others, it might just be a mere loan, but to Salome, it’s the biggest opportunity she will have this season for changing her life.

Kindly lend to her this 2019 season!
