Jane's story

Wonderful Kiva community,

Get to know Jane, 32 year old Mom of four school going children. She is a woman who will always work hard toward her success and the welfare of her family. She has always toiled to narrow the gap between herself and her achievements. Her work is to nurture the growth of plants and animals on her farm. Her husband helps her by looking for new markets for their produce. She also transports the produce to their local market where they sell it.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs (fertilizer and hybrid seeds) is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Jane is seeking a helping hand to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizer and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her produce.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, who 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 input availability than before. Jane is assured of a bumper harvest, which will open new markets for her crops and subsequently, increase her profits. This will elevate her standard of living, as well as that of her beautiful children.
