Kennedy's story

Before Kennedy took on farming, he had to understand the risks involved in nurturing the growth of crops and raising of farm animals. He is a married man who loves his family. He spends a considerable amount of time taking care of his family as well as his farm, which sometimes becomes very tedious and tiresome.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic with upgrading of the kind of inputs that are being used in the sector today. On this note, there is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. Kennedy will use this loan to buy quality farm inputs, such as certified seeds and fertilizer, to help improve his crop production and generate profits to pay tuition fees for his children.

Unlike most microfinance organizations in Kenya that have imposed very complicated procedures in funds acquisition, thereby discouraging smallholder farmers, Juhudi Kilimo is working closely with Kiva to make loan acquisition for a smallholder farmer easy and convenient. Kennedy is so thankful for your attention, your time in reading through his profile and your support.
