A loan helped to buy farming inputs such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve her tea production and make more profit for this single mother of three.

Nipredah's story

Nipredah’s face is not new on this Kiva platform. She is a repeat Kiva borrower who has successfully repaid all her previous loans. Although she is single, with three children under her care, she has always kept her head high because she wants the best for them. Thanks to the income that she makes through dairy and crop farming, she has been able to send two of her three children to school. Nipredah's region has favorable weather conditions for tea and dairy farming. The biggest challenge for farmers, especially in Nyamira, is the high cost of farming inputs. Most farmers must use organic farming methods, and with time, the fertility of the soil is lost.

Nipredah is seeking this loan so that she can use it to buy farming inputs, such as hybrid seeds and fertilizer, to improve her fields’ output. The returns on this investment will change her life and that of her entire household, as she will use the additional income to raise their living standards. Nipredah has a great desire to succeed, and she thanks her lenders for their generous support. She has extended her thanks to the Kiva world for their help and support.
