Chalensensia's story

Chalensensia (57 years old) is a mother of three children living in Kenyenya, a land of seemingly never-ending beauty that is endowed with beautiful rivers and green vegetation. She does not let anything come between her and her big dreams of self-accomplishment.

Today, she owns dairy cows and a small farm where she practices crop farming. The biggest problem faced by farmers from her village is the huge discrepancy in their access to agricultural inputs, resulting in lower output and earnings for farmers than what they could be. To fix this problem, Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers such as Chalensensia can take out loans and purchase Agrovet products such as hybrid and drought-resistant seeds, and organic manure.

Your loan will enable Chalensensia to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. Her competitive advantage in the market will be evident after she receives this loan. Through this intervention, she will be able to afford food for her loving family.

She thanks Kiva lenders for their kindness.
