Josphine's story

Born in 1949, Josphine is a mother of three children; she lives in Kerugoya. She is a repeat Kiva borrower who is happy to share her profile on this platform and hopes for consideration by Kiva lenders.

Josphine has three children who she has managed to educate, thanks to the profits she gets from her mixed farm. Josphine injects passion and determination in her work to enable her to comfortably support her family.

The Kerugoya area has favorable conditions for horticultural farming. That is why Josphine is seeking a loan to buy seeds and start a horticulture farming business. With good roads, a good climate, and a good transportation network, she is sure that she will reap maximum profits and be able to increase her business. Horticultural produce, such as vegetables, requires a good climate and a good transport network because they are perishable.

Josphine believes that this investment will bring profits, grow her business, and allow her to generate more income to fulfill her dreams of making some home improvements. Her goal is to give her family the best life possible.
