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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, to enable this borrower with a good credit history to grow more crops.

Prisila's story

As the new planting season begins, Prisila has made resolutions, and one of them is to increase her farming productivity.

Prisila is 51 years old and lives in the Kerugoya area of Kenya. She is blessed with a lovely family who are her greatest motivators. She perseveres because she wants to provide them with a better future.

The Kerugoya area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 60,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer, to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and expand her business.

Being a poor woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging, but Prisila feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself.

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and to secure her family’s future. She is a borrower who has a good credit history and is worth supporting.

This loan will surely raise up her hopes and expectations for a better life.
