Lilian's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a single mom to buy farm inputs, such as high-nutrient fertilizers, to improve her vegetable crop production.

Lilian's story

Wonderful Kiva lenders,

Lilian,(36) a single mother of 4 who is pictured on her vegetable farm, is a devoted woman who is working hard to make the world a better place for her family. She is a determined mother who moves from pillar to post to meet her children's needs. Lilian is planning to turn her life around in 2020 and is confident of a Kiva loan. She has a passion for farming, which started after seeing her parents' smiles after every harvest they completed.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, improving the kind of inputs that are used in the sector today. There is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production, including high-quality seeds and rich nutrient fertilizers.

As an informed farmer, Lilian has taken this loan to buy farm inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers to improve her vegetable crop production. This will increase profits to pay her children's school fees debt.

This loan is an opportunity that Lilian never had before. Her irregular income and lack of collateral limited her access to commercial bank loans. Thanks to Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, the lives of Lilian and her family will be changed by this loan.
