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

A loan helped to buy cereals (lentils, cowpeas and maize) to meet demand for cereals in her village and, through increased profits, to support her five children.

Mable's story

Mable is a 55-year-old single mother of five children. She lives in Vihiga, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and horticultural farming. She is very proactive in approach to farming decisions because she wants the best for her children. She loves her family and is determined to give them a good quality of life. Apart from dairy and crop farming, she also sells cereals to supplement her income.

Mable is seeking this loan, to buy cereals (lentils, cowpeas, and maize).

Her remote area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Mable could increase her profits and satisfy the local demand. Accessing funds has been a challenge for Mable. She was relieved to find that Juhudi Kilimo partners with Kiva lenders to help hardworking women farmers like her turn their dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Mable believes that this loan will be of much help to her, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for cereals and support her children and aging parents.

Mable is very thankful for your support and empowerment.
