Rachael's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy poultry and increase her poultry farming, and eventually use the profits to support her seven children.

Rachael's story

Rachael is a mother of seven children and has become admirable for her success. Despite the ups and downs she has been through, she still sacrifices much for her husband and children and has never looked back. She is a progressive woman who likes trying new things in life. Rachael’s main sources of income include milk, and some crop varieties that she sells on her local farm in certain seasons. Not many women find it easy to live in Nyahururu, but as an ambitious woman, she has made great progress.

The Nyahururu area is very populated and the demand for poultry products is very high. Rachael finds poultry farming very enjoyable since she has a great passion for birds. She lacks funds to increase her poultry farming, so she is seeking a loan of 50,000 KES to buy poultry.

Being a woman seeking to access funds in Kenya, especially the Nyahururu area, is very challenging. Through institutions such as Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, she feels relieved knowing that her dream will be achieved, and that she will be able to buy more poultry. The extra income she will get will be used to fully repay the loan and pay tuition fees for her children.

Rachael is so thankful to have a chance like this. She hopes you will respond to her humble request.
