Emily's story

Emily, a 22-year-old mom of 2, has never felt sorry for herself for a lack of formal secondary education. She uses her natural abilities to pull herself out of her poverty. Emily has never lost her enthusiasm. She moves from one challenge to another and emerges a victor. She is a dairy and crop farmer.

In Kitale, Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and farming inputs, which are always rising. Emily has a challenge of transporting her farm produce to the market.

After learning about Juhudi Kilimo, Emily applied for this loan to buy a motorbike that she will use to transport her perishable products to the market.

Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interests on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of smallholder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Please support this woman to achieve her dreams today!
