Rosemary's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers to boost her crop quality, earn more profit, and as a single woman, elevate her standard of living.

Rosemary's story

Rosemary is a single mother of two children in Kerugoya, a land of seemingly never ending beauty. She is a woman who values education and has managed to send all her children to school thanks to the profits that she makes through mixed crop and dairy farming.

Access to modern, quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seeds allocated by the government are far 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's been a significant improvement in input availability.

Rosemary is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers to boost the quality of her crop farm, earn more profits, and elevate her standard of living. She plans to use the profits to repay the loan and improve her living conditions. Please click that lend button and be a source of hope for her ahead of the Chrismas holiday.
