Jesca's story

Meet Jesca, seen here with her dairy cows and tea fields. She recalls the series of failures she experienced before she became an established farmer. She had huge losses on her farm, leading to a lack of morale and determination to continue farming.

However, Jesca withstood all of her challenges with anticipation of better things in her future. Today, she is one of the most respected women in her remote village. She is known there because of her resilient nature. She is a very hardworking and self-driven mother.

The main challenge that Jesca faces as a farmer is the high cost of farming inputs in her area. She has taken this loan so that she can buy quality farming inputs such as certified and nutrient-rich fertilizer, which she plans to use on her tea farm. With these inputs, she will be assured of a good tea harvest, which will consequently reflect in her pocketbook.

Please support Jesca with a loan as she joins Kiva in fighting world hunger.
