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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to greatly improve her farm yield and make more income to care for her family.


Roselyne's story

Roselyne is a 39-year-old mother of five children who is very determined to succeed. Roselyne’s primary sources of income are milk sales and a personal business she engages in to make ends meet. She has managed to take care of her family with her income from selling milk.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution. Some farmers, especially women, end up in hopelessness, despondency, and lack of morale to invest in agriculture.

Roselyne has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to buy farming inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to greatly improve her farm yield and make more income to care for her family. With this loan, Roselyne expects to increase her crop production, which will translate into a high, good-quality yield. Her living standards will be changed completely. Roselyne and her family are so grateful for the impact that this loan will bring in their lives.
