Consolatta's story

Consolatta (pictured above), is very happy to share her profile on this platform for the first time. She is a mother of five children from Matuu, the home town of some of the world's most beautiful sculptures. Consolatta obtains her income through mixed farming, the work she has done for the last five years.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, has ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in inputs available.

Consolatta is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs such as fertilizer and certified seeds to improve her farm and generate more income to support her family. Consolatta feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. She is always working to improve her living condition and her biggest dreams are to become independent, support her aging parents, secure her sibling’s future, and buy a home. Kindly lend to this hardworking woman!
