Mercy's story

Mercy is a mother with a golden smile that is enough to urge a toddler to take their first step. She is a hardworking woman who continues to enjoy her interaction with Kiva lenders with this being her seventh loan. Mercy has successfully repaid her previous loans enabling her to qualify for higher limits.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Farmers can attest to that. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, there has been a significant improvement in input availability.

Mercy has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to purchase farming inputs, such as nutrient-rich fertilizers, to boost the quality of her produce, increase her profits, and elevate her standard of living. The loan you give Mercy will have a lasting impact in her heart, and she will forever be indebted to the lenders.
