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

A loan helped to buy different varieties of cereals from farmers to resell them at a profit, thereby changing her life.

Alice's story

Alice, a 61-year-old mom of 7, is a caring mother who moves from pillar to post in search of success. She is a forward-looking person who always bounces back, even after being knocked down by setbacks. She never quits. Alice lives in Siongiroi, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. Here she practices mixed crop and dairy farming.

Alice has decided to borrow a loan that she will use in buying different varieties of cereal grains from local farmers and selling them to her customers and at the local market. Through this engagement, she will earn a profit that she intends to use to repay the loan and elevate her standard of living. This loan is, therefore, an opportunity that she never got before.

Her irregular income and lack of collateral were the main drawbacks limiting her from accessing a loan from the commercial banks. Thanks to Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, the life of this woman will be changed through this loan.
