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

A loan helped to buy high-quality seeds to improve her horticulture farm yield and profits, and, as a caring woman, ensure her children graduate from school.

Grace's story

Grace is a repeat Kiva borrower who has previously shared her profile on this platform. She is a hardworking mother of two children living in Kerugoya, a town where the main economic activities include agricultural processing, particularly in horticulture and tea. Grace practices mixed dairy and crop farming to support her family.

Over time, the fertility of her land has started to dwindle, and her maize and horticultural yields are decreasing each season. Grace’s farmland has also been affected by weeds. She is currently requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to buy certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve her horticulture farm, to generate more revenue and educate her children.

Through this loan, Grace expects to increase her horticulture crop production, which will translate into an improved harvest and a higher income. Thus, this loan will change her living standard. Grace is confident that if you invest in her business, 2020 will be a great year for her. She thanks you wholeheartedly for your previous help and hopes for your warm response.
