Ednah's story

Hello lenders,

Juhudi Kilimo would like to present to you a hardworking mother by the name of Ednah, a 35-year-old mom of four pictured in her simple house. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them.

Ednah earns a living by raising dairy cows and selling groceries (fruits and vegetables). She has been able to send all of her four children to school. Ednah has been engaged in her businesses for many years. Her biggest problem is meeting customer demand because of a shortage of products. Thus, she is asking for a loan to buy fruits and vegetables to stock her grocery. With her marketing skills and determination, Ednah will be able to increase her sales revenue.

Ednah plans to use the additional profits to clear her children's school fees. She will also buy nutritious food for her children, whom she loves and adores so much.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Vihiga, where Ednah lives, is very challenging. But she feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. Ednah is happy that her grocery business will excel and that she will be able to buy more land for farming, next season.
