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

A loan helped to buy fertilizer and high-quality seeds so that a borrower with good credit standing can increase her crop production and improve her living standards.

Tecla's story

The nice woman you see above is Tecla, a 66-year-old mom of 4 children. She is from a remote village in the Eldoret area of Kenya.

Tecla is a very hardworking person. Thanks to her daily effort, she has managed to give her family a good start by providing them with a good-quality life. Tecla’s primary sources of income are crops and cow farming. She also earns some income from a personal business. The Litein area is a favorable area for farming, so she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds to enable her to grow more crops. This will help her to reap maximum profits and also increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya is very challenging, especially in the Eldoret area, but Tecla is relieved to know there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her.

Tecla's goal is to improve her living conditions and secure the future of her family. Her biggest dreams are to be able to support her family by herself and to become independent. Tecla counts on your help and hopes for your attention.
