Rose's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to grow more crop plants to help a mom improve her life and help create hope in a mom this 2020 season.

Rose's story

Rose (a 47-year-old single mom of 1) is a hardworking mom from a remote village in the Maua area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start.

She has a farm where she grows different crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business. She never had a formal education and is content with the farming lifestyle. The Kerugoya area is a favorable one for farming.

She is seeking a 100,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer , to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her farming business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging, but Rose 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.
