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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her production and earn more income to support her children who are in school.

Grace's story

Grace is a mother of two children living in Kerugoya, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale grain, dairy, and horticultural farming. She is a hard worker who injects passion and determination into her work because she wants to give her family a solid reputation. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, requiring improved inputs, including high quality seeds and fertilizers, for effective production. As an informed farmer, Grace has taken this loan to purchase farm inputs, including fertilizers and seeds, to boost her yields and improve her sales so that she has enough money to educate her children.

This loan is an opportunity unlike any Grace has had before. Her irregular income and lack of collateral were her main challenges to accessing a loan from commercial banks. Thanks to Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva Grace and her family's lives will be changed through this loan.
