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


A loan helped to buy cereals (beans and maize) to sell in her village market, and, as an ever smiling mom, use the profits to support her children.


Jane's story

Juhudi Kilimo is a field partner that cares about mothers and would like to celebrate all mothers.

Jane, a mom of one, is a repeat Kiva borrower with a very good loan repayment history. She lives in Kenyenya.

She has been farming for the last few years. In her village, she practices mixed farming. The income she makes from selling milk and different crops is used to meet the basic needs of her household. Though she has gathered much experience in this business, she is not comfortable with the little amount she earns.

Jane has decided to focus more of her attention on farming. However, she needs to boost her income by buying different varieties of cereals (beans and corn) from local farmers, and selling them to her customers and at the local market. Through this engagement, she will earn a commission that she intends to use to repay the loan and elevate her standard of living.

Light up a spirit this last phase of 2019 !
