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

A loan helped a single woman borrower with good credit standing to buy farm inputs to improve her productivity, leading to increased profits to support her child.

Margaret's story

Her passion for her work and love for family are the pillars on which Margaret has remained in the path of success. She is an honest woman who will do anything to give her family a solid reputation. She is a repeat borrower and one of the most successful farmers in Bungoma, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises.

Margaret requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo after realizing that they are in partnership with Kiva and are willing to help her realize her dreams. She will use this loan to purchase farming inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, which will improve her farm's yield and earn more profits from sales to support her family. For a woman like Margaret, accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Bungoma area where she lives, is very challenging. Margaret feels relieved knowing there are institutions that help enterprising women like herself.
