Rebecca's story

Rebecca, a 34-year-old mother of five school going children, believes this is her opportunity to move forward with her life and give her family a solid reputation. Thanks to her daily efforts, she's managed to give her family a good start. Rebecca has a farm growing different crops in Eldoret, an area favorable for farming, and keeps a dairy cow. She also earns income from a personal business. She didn't have a formal secondary education and is content with farm life.

Rebecca is seeking a 100,000 KES loan through Kiva field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, that she will use to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, to improve her farm. This will enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits and expand her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Rebecca's village, is very challenging. Rebecca is relieved to know there are institutions like Kiva helping enterprising women like herself. She's always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Kindly lend to this hardworking mom with a perfect credit rating!
