Clara's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers to improve her crop production, which will enable her to support her three children.

Clara's story

Clara is a humble mother of three children who spent the bigger part of her childhood life helping her parents in farming. Today, she farms in Nyahururu, Kenya, home to the famous Thomson’s Falls. Here, she practices mixed dairy and crop farming, enabling her to support her family. Through farming, she has been able to send two of her three children to school.

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

Clara is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs, such as high-nutrient fertilizers, to improve her crop production. She wants to become a successful businesswoman and ensure a better quality of life and welfare for her family. Support Clara with a loan.
