Martha's story

There is no better feeling than living in Kerugoya, Kenya, and waking up every day to see the peak of Mount Kenya. The region has a history of regular rainfall patterns and this has a direct connection with good agricultural production. Martha (pictured above) lives here with her family. Her primary sources of income have been milk and various crops. Martha is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although Martha makes a profit from farming, she is not yet comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. This is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds to improve her crop farming.

Kenya's Kerugoya area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Martha could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for horticultural products there. Martha feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest female farmers like her turn their farming dreams into a reality through training and loan financing. Martha believes that this loan will be of help and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for horticultural crops and support her aging parents.

Kindly lend to her, and you will not be disappointed when it comes to paying back the loan.
