Eunice's story

Hello, Kiva community! Eunice was born in 1973 and is a single mom of 5 children. She loves people and has always been kind to other residents of Eldoret, the remote town where she lives. Eunice has experienced many challenges, but she always finds a way to pull through. She is elegant and admirable in spirit and effort. Eunice’s primary sources of income have been milk and crops. She also has a small side business to supplement the meager income she earns from farming. Although she has been making a profit from farming, she has identified a market segment for selling cereals. The only big challenge Eunice faces is the lack of funds. As such, Eunice is requesting a loan to buy different varieties of cereals, such as corn, beans, and rice to sell in the local market in order to generate a profit to support her family. The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, so she plans to take advantage of that fact. Because of the good relationship she has with her neighbors, Eunice plans to increase her market share by using word-of-mouth to reach more customers and markets. You can help this mother achieve her dreams with a loan that will lead to larger profits.
