Catherine's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds, to improve the quality of her produce, earn more profits, and elevate her living standards.
She ventured into farming a ten years ago. Her primary income sources are crops and animal products. The quality of Catherine’s crops has dwindled, due to the use of poor farm inputs. This has brought about low demand for her crops and has negatively impacted her sales.
Access to modern-quality farm inputs (fertilizers and hybrid seeds) is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Catherine is seeking a helping hand to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her produce.
Since Juhudi Kilimo, which 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 the availability of inputs. Catherine 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.
