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

A loan helped to buy seeds and fertilizers so that this repeat Kiva borrower with a perfect credit history can improve her crop farming.

Eunice's story

The nice woman presented above is Eunice, a 41-year-old mom of 5, who is a repeat Kiva borrower with a perfect credit history. She is a very hardworking woman. Thanks to her tirelessness and selflessness, Eunice has managed to give her children a good foundation by providing them with a good-quality education.

She hails from Bomet, a remote area of Kenya. Her primary sources of income are maize crops and animal farming. She also gets some income from a personal business. She is content with the farming way of life and never had a formal education or formal employment.

Residents of Bomet enjoy climatic conditions that are favorable for crop farming. Eunice is requesting this loan so that she can buy seeds and fertilizers to improve her crop farming.

In Bomet, women find it very challenging to obtain loans from commercial banks. Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have made it easier to obtain financial support. Eunice is, therefore, confident that she will get this loan and will be able to change her life. Her goal is to improve her living conditions and secure the future of her children, who are in school. Her biggest dreams are to be able to support her family by herself, to become independent, and to buy a home.
