Judy's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Meet Judy, an inspiring mother of two children living in Eldoret, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is a mixed farmer who works hard to give her family a solid reputation. In her home village, it is a common belief that being born into a wealthy home and/or being more educated are the only guaranteed ways of becoming successful. Judy started farming a few years ago with the aim of providing for her family's basic needs. She has done tremendous work in the agribusiness field with her great passion and enthusiasm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Judy is not comfortable. She has always wanted to increase her income by buying quality inputs to plant so she can sell more crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her crop produce, earn more profits, and elevate her living standards. Judy feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest female farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Judy believes that this loan will be of help and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for crops. Kindly lend to her and keep her smiling.
