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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as high-quality seeds and fertilizer.

Monicah's story

Monicah, 32, mom of three (two of which are school going), is a captivating young woman who knows what it takes to be successful. She is a hardworking person who moves heaven and earth for the sake of her children. With time, the fertility of her land has started to dwindle and whenever she plants her crops, the yields go down with each season.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, requiring upgraded inputs for effective production.

Today, Monicah is requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo, via Kiva lenders, to buy farm inputs such as high-quality seeds and fertilizer. Through this loan, Monicah is going to increase her crop production, which will translate into improved income. This loan will change Monicah's living standards and there is no doubt that if you invest in her, the next planting season will be great.

Light up a life this season and empower a smallholder Kenyan woman, through a loan!
