but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy fruits and vegetables in order to open a grocery store and make more profit as a mother whose life is taking a new direction.

Loice's story

The majority of smallholder farmers in Kenya struggle to make their way to success. This was true for Loice, a mother of four who was born in 1982, and who is based in the Siongiroi area of Kenya. She has been practicing mixed farming for the past ten years and has managed to earn a decent income. Her primary source of income has been from milk, eggs, crops and some personal business she engages in to make ends meet. Thanks to previous loans from Kiva lenders, her life is taking a new direction.

Loice is seeking this loan to buy fruits and vegetables to open a grocery business. She will use her market knowledge to fix a good price for her products. The additional profits she will earn will be saved for the education of her children, as well as be used for loan repayment. Loice will also help other farmers in her place of residence, since she will create a good market for their commodities. Employment will therefore be created in this village. This can only come true if you extend your goodwill to Loice. Kindly lend to this industrious mother and light up her flames of hope for success.
