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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to enable this borrower with a good credit history to grow more tea crops and help create hope for her this 2019.

Witnes's story

Dear Kiva Community,

Witnes is a hardworking mom from a remote village in the Nyamira area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start by providing them with a good quality of life. Witnes has a farm where she grows different crops.

The Nyamira area is a favourable one for farming, so she is seeking a 70,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits and expand her crop business. Being a poor woman, accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging. Witnes feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions.

Her biggest dreams are to become independent and secure her family’s future. She is a borrower who has a good credit history and is worth supporting.
