Coreti's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for crop cultivation for this woman with a good credit history.
Coreti (56 years old mom of 2) is very hardworking and a high-flier. She hails from a remote village in the Eldoret area of Kenya. This area has tough living conditions and to survive you must have tough skin. Coreti has defied all the odds and has chosen to work hard so that she can meet the requirements of her loving family. She is the only breadwinner. Coreti practices farming Coreti works on her farm and rearing dairy cows. She has not been using farming inputs like nutrient-rich fertilizers and seeds. Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way 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 that there has been a significant improvement in inputs availability than earlier. Coreti has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to purchase farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to boost the quality of her produce, increase her profits, and elevate her standard of living. The loan you give Coreti will have a lasting impact in her heart and she will forever be indebted to the lenders.
