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


A loan helped to pay labor costs and buy farm inputs (high-quality seeds and good fertilizer) to improve her crops.


Judis's story

Judis (a 57-year old repeat Kiva borrower pictured outside her house made from rusty material) is a determined woman who has only one thought in her mind: to prosper. She is a farmer from Bungoma, Kenya. She is responsible for all of the operations on her farm, which she performs perfectly. She rears dairy cows and grows crops, and does daily household chores such as cooking, collecting water, and caring for her two school-going children.

Judis practices agriculture, employing youthful energy, hard work, and knowledge from the many agricultural training seminars she has received through Juhudi Kilimo. Using the requested loan, she plans to pay for labor costs and buy farm inputs (high-quality seeds and good fertilizer) to improve her crops.

Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques. Using high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profit levels. Judis is a visionary. Her goal for the season is to boost her crop production over the previous year and also build a modern house.

All of this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill.
