Maryetta's story

Maryetta, a 52-year-old mom of four pictured outside her simple house, has a lovely family. She will do anything to prevent them from going to bed with empty stomachs. Maryetta is from the Kitui area of Kenya. She never got the opportunity to advance her education and get a white-collar job, but these realities did not kill her dream of wanting to succeed in life. She practices mixed farming. With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs.

Maryetta requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 30,000 KES, which she will use to buy seeds to improve her crop farming. She wants to take advantage of various conditions such as favorable weather patterns, a good road network in her village, good soil, and a ready market for crop products to reap more profits. By the end of the first year, she hopes that she will not only be selling her crops in the local market but also in international markets through the export of various crops.

Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva and Kiva lenders to help hardworking women like Maryetta turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Maryetta is very thankful for her future lenders' help and understanding.
