Sarah's story

This year, Juhudi Kilimo is celebrating its tenth anniversary of supporting smallholder farmers in Kenya and would like to invite Kiva lenders to join through lending to women like Sarah, a mother of one school going child. Sarah, who hails from the Kerugoya area of Kenya, is a humble mom whose main dream is to improve the conditions of her home. She has a lovely family that she really adores. She will do anything good to prevent them from ever having to go to bed with hungry stomachs.

Sarah has been farming for the past few years. Through the years, she has gathered much experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips. Sarah practices mixed farming. With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs.

Sarah is very enterprising and is seeking a loan to buy seeds to improve her crop farming. Sarah wants to take advantage of the favorable weather patterns, a good road network in her village, good soil and a ready market for crop products. This will increase her profit.

Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva and the Kiva lender community to help hardworking and honest women like Sarah turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Sarah hopes that she will improve her living conditions.
