Rose's story

Special Kiva community, introducing Rose!

Rose, a 39-year-old mom of one school-going child, is a rural smallholder farmer from the Kenyenya area of Kenya. Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities, such as growing different crops.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is limited access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

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

Rose is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers.

Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life.

She hopes to improve the conditions of her house. Help this mother to accomplish all her dreams with just a loan!
