Jane's story

Wonderful Kiva community:

Get to know Jane, a mom of 3 (pictured above carrying one of her children) who will always work hard toward her success and the welfare of her family. She has always toiled to narrow the gap between herself and her goals. Her work is to nurture the growth of plants and animals on her farm. Her husband helps her by looking for new markets for their produce.

Jane has been in the business of farming for many years. Access to modern-quality farm inputs (fertilizer 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.

Jane is seeking a helping hand to build a fish pond and buy fish fingerlings to start fish farming. Her area has a ready market for fish, but the problem is lack of supply. Through this loan she will be able to harvest the fish and sell to the ready market.

Kindly lend to her.
