Anne's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable a return Kiva borrower to pay back her loan on time while growing more vegetables.

Anne's story

Anne (a mother of three school-going children) is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in Eldoret, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with good-quality education. Anne has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock; she also earns some income from a personal business.

The Eldoret area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 30,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds to enable her to grow more vegetables, reap maximum profit, and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Eldoret, are very challenging, but Anne feels relieved knowing that there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, to secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.

Anne is very thankful in advance for your contribution and understanding. This loan is going to greatly impact the livelihood of her family.
