Peres's story

Wonderful Kiva lenders; Peres is a devoted woman who works on her farm to ensure that she is able to meet the responsibilities of taking care of her family. She is a woman who is kind, humble and devoted. Peres has been very faithful when it comes to repaying her loans. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for her family. Peres obtains her income through dairy and crop 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 in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest to a significant improvement in input availability.

Peres is humbly on her knees seeking a KES 50,000 loan to buy farm inputs such as high-quality seeds and fertilizers to improve productivity on her farm. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business. A significant portion of the profit will be used to support her family expenses. Support this super woman and loan now to enable her make this festive season colorful for her family.
