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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as certified quality seeds and fertilizer, to improve her horticulture farming and eventually, through increased profits, improve her standard of living.

Keziah's story

Keziah (pictured inside her house) is a 23-year-old mother of two children living in Thika, a town where one of the main economic activities is agricultural processing, particularly in horticulture and pineapple. She is a very hardworking woman who has always wanted to give her family a solid reputation. Through experience based on curiosity and her natural abilities, Keziah has emerged as one of the most respected farmers in her village. Although she makes a profit from farming, Keziah's standard of living is not comfortable. She has always wanted to increase her income by buying quality seeds and other farm inputs.

Keziah has requested this loan in order to make these investments and improve her horticulture farming. Kenya's Thika area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Keziah could increase her profits by meeting the existing demand for horticulture products. Keziah is grateful that Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like herself turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

She is confident that this loan will help her, and that she will be able to improve her standard of living through satisfying local demand for horticulture products. Keziah is a special person and is grateful for the help and support of her Kiva lenders
