Philiph's story

Greetings from Bomet, Kenya!

Philiph, 55, is an honest, hardworking farmer by nature. He is a mixed farmer who has had to overcome great adversity, such as long periods of drought, natural calamities such as hailstorms, and other events that affected his crops. But Philiph knew how to recover and continue strong with his vegetable and crop farming.

In the Bomet area of Kenya, where Philiph is from, most people depend on agriculture for a living. Their biggest challenge is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers in Keny can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs.

Philiph is humbly seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides. Your loan will enable him to improve his production with the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help him fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan and improve his family's quality of life. Philiph wants to begin the next planting season on a high note and on good footing. Support this farmer and loan now!
