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


A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and high quality fertilizers, to improve her yields and generate more income to improve the quality of life for her family.


Monicah's story

Monicah is a first time kiva borrower who is very happy to share her profile on this platform. She is full of hope and expectations for success. Monicah has three children who are all in school. She supports her family using the income that she obtains through dairy and crop farming. Monicah is seeking a 50,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and high quality fertilizers, to improve her yields and generate more income to improve the quality of life for her family.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging. Monicah feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.
