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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer to expand her horticulture farming, so she can earn profits to educate her children till they finish their degree courses.

Lilian's story

This is Lilian, a repeat Kiva borrower who has four children under her control. Lilian is the voice of hope and an icon of success to her family members. She has always worked hard to give them a solid reputation. That is why Juhudi would like Kiva lenders to partner in giving her a loan.

Lilian loves and cherishes her children more than anything in the world. Her family's main income sources are crop farming and milk from her dairy farm. However, she is also involved in other agricultural activities, such as growing corn and rearing sheep.

Lilian has decided to request a loan to buy farming inputs, such as fertilizer and seed. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan and improve the quality of life for her family. Please help this mother to accomplish all her dreams with just a loan.

Lilian counts on your help and hopes for your attention.
