Fridah's story

Juhudi Kilimo wishes all Kiva lenders a happy festive season. Fridah (a 38-year-old mom of four pictured above) has planned to bring a smile to all her children this festive season. This can be possible if Kiva lenders extend their good will to her.

Fridah is a dairy farmer living in Kitale, Kenya, where she farms in order to meet the needs of her lovely family. Her passion and enthusiasm for farming have made her gain much respect in her village, and she is treated as a mentor by her village counterparts.

Fridah owns a small parcel of land. On her farm, she practices mixed farming. This kind mother keeps dairy animals and grows a variety of crops. She has many years of experience in farming.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, meaning the kinds of inputs that are being used in the sector today have been upgraded. On this note, there is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. These include high-quality seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

As a knowledgeable agricultural producer, Fridah has decided to apply for a loan that she will use to buy farming inputs. This loan will surely change her life, as she will be able to produce more and hence shift her income level. The impact of this loan will be smiles on the faces of her children. She has thanked her lenders in advance.
