Judith's story

Judith is a widow and a mother of four children who entirely depend on her. She is a passionate smallholder farmer who started farming a few years ago due to the economic necessities of her life. Her goal to get ahead is admirable because, despite her age and the hindrances she has experienced, she doesn't ease her efforts to achieve her objective. What she sets out to do, she achieves. Judith practices mixed farming on her farm. With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs and also give her children a good education.

Judith is seeking a loan of 25,000 KES to buy seeds and improve her crop farming. Judith wants to reap more profits by taking advantage of her area's favorable weather patterns, the good road network in her village, good soil, and a ready market for crop products. Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva to help hard-working women like Judith make their farming dreams a reality through training and loan financing.

Please help this woman who has dreams and goals to achieve. Come on, make a loan and her life will feel worth living. Your loan will help a rural mum develop her farming business and secure her family's future.
