Joyce's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds to improve her crop production and use the profits to support her family.

Joyce's story

Just like any other mother on earth, Joyce would never give up on her four children. She is a smallholder female farmer from Nyamira, an area with vast potential for agricultural growth. Joyce practices organic farming.

Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Nyamira, like Joyce, can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs to use on their farms.

Joyce is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her to meet the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan and improve the quality of life for her family. Your loan will surely go a long way toward changing Joyce's living conditions, making her more prepared for the future. Be inspired and make a difference in a mother’s life!
