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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers so that she can use the profits from her farm to support her family.

Evangeline's story

Evangeline is not a new borrower on this platform; she is a woman defined by her character of love for work and family. Evangeline lives with her husband and three children in Maua, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. Here, she practices mixed dairy and crop farming. Through farming, she has sent two of her three children to school in a move to scale up their heights of prosperity. She is visionary and eager to ensure that she keeps progressing.

Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, has extended its services to the remote areas in the Maua region of Kenya, and their staffs are keen to ensure that hardworking women like Evangeline benefit from loans that enable them to purchase farming inputs.

She is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer. Your loan will enable Evangeline to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. Through this intervention, she will be able to improve the quality of her farm products and attract more buyers, leading to more profits.

Support her this year and make her life bright!
