Irine's story

Irine is 67 years old and lives in Kapsowar, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. Irine has been farming for thirty years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been tea farming, milk, eggs, and horticulture crops. Irine is passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm. Although she makes a profit from farming, Irine is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is reaching out to the Kiva community for this loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and improve her horticulture farming. Kenya's Kapsowar area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Irine could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for horticulture products that already exists. Irine feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Kindly lend to her!
