Beninah's story

Hello, wonderful lenders.

Meet Beninah, a charismatic middle-aged woman and an excellent example of what hard work can accomplish. In her village, she practices mixed farming. She has three children who mean the whole world to her. Two of her children are in school. On her farm, she has reared dairy animals and nurtures the growth of different crops. Though she has gathered much experience in this business, she is not comfortable with the little amount she earns since she is the only breadwinner in her household.

The growing population of animals has created the need for more animal feed on Beninah’s farm. Her Napier grass is not sufficient to feed all her cows, so she is requesting this loan to buy animal feed. She will buy feed with high nutritional value so that her animals will grow healthy and increase their production. This loan is an opportunity that Beninah has never had before. Her irregular income and lack of collateral security were the main drawbacks limiting her from accessing a loan in commercial banks. Thanks to Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, the life of Beninah and her family will be changed through this loan.
