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

A loan helped to buy chicks and construct new hatcheries so that a single mother can start poultry farming and make more income for her family.

Judith's story

Judith, pictured inside her house, is a single mother of three children and a determined woman living in Nakuru, Kenya, a town that lies 1,850 meters above sea level on the highlands of Kenya. It enjoys a temperate climate that favors coffee, wheat, barley, maize, bean and potato farming. She is a repeat Kiva borrower, who has successfully repaid her previous loans. Thanks to her passion and determination to work, she has been able to send all her three children to school.

Her work is to nurture the growth of plants and animals on her farm. Because she is a single mother with lovely children to care for, she injects passion and determination into her work. With such responsibilities on her shoulders, she wants to start a new enterprise.

Judith is obtaining this loan to buy chicks and construct new hatcheries, where she will practice poultry farming. Through the profits she will make, she plans to improve her family's life and pay school fees for her children. From this enterprise, she will obtain chicken manure that is very rich in nutrients to use on her garden, enabling her to improve her maize farm.

Juhudi Kilimo is working closely with Kiva to make loan acquisition for a smallholder farmer easy and convenient. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Judith has thanked her faithful lenders in advance.
