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

A loan helped to pay for a posho mill (grain mill) that she will use to process corn grain and sell it as a finished product.

Felister's story

Felister is a single, 37-year-old mother of four who really wants to see her children realize their dreams. That is why she is full of enthusiasm and energy when working tirelessly in her mixed farm.

She started dairy and crop farming a few years ago. She has grown the agribusiness from scratch to its current profitable position. She has always aspired to introduce more value in order to make her clients happier and make the farm more profitable.

The activities she has been running have been generating just enough income to cover her monthly business expenses and basic necessities of the home. She is counting on the support of Kiva lenders to access a loan that will enable her to pay for a posho mill (grain mill). With this loan, she will be able to process maize grain and sell it as a finished product.

Ugali is a staple food in Kenya made from maize flour. The posho mill will also generate income from other families looking to grind maize grains they have harvested. Felister is very motivated with this big project because it is the tipping point for her family.

Triumph in efforts to elevate their livelihood will make her feel much more than pride.
