Esther's story

Esther (a 37-year-old mom) is an optimistic woman who has always desired to achieve. She knows that this will be possible through hard work and determination. She works hard to achieve her dreams.

Esther is married and has six children, all whom are in school. She loves and takes great care of her family.

Esther was born in a family where farming skills were passed on from one generation to another. She did not have any alternative way of earning an income, so she ventured into farming.

Through continuous involvement in crop and animal farming, Esther is able to provide her family with meals at least once a day.

Esther has realized that there are very few crop farmers in her local market. She views this as a great opportunity for her to make increased profits that would go beyond meeting the basic needs of her household.

Esther feels inconvenienced by the services of financial institutions around her, especially when she is in need of an urgent loan.

She is therefore seeking the intervention of Juhudi Kilimo, in collaboration with Kiva, to help her raise capital to buy high-quality farming inputs such as certified seeds and rich nutrients fertilizers.

She wants to plant a variety of crops, which she will later sell at her local market. She thanks the entire Kiva community for its kindness.
