Rispa's story

Rispa is a 35-year-old mom of 6. She is a woman with an unending desire to achieve. She hails from a remote village in the Kitale area of Kenya, where farming has been embraced as the only primary economic activity.

Rispa has never shifted her attention away from farming, but has always worked hard to meet her set objectives. She enjoys generating an income through selling her harvest, which makes her feel accomplished. To her, labor is not a major challenge, but she finds the cost of farming inputs very high.

Before joining Juhudi Kilimo, Rispa could not access loans from banks, since she is a woman and a smallholder farmer. When she joined Juhudi Kilimo, she learned about loan management and agribusiness. She also got to learn about Kiva.
Rispa requested a loan to purchase farm inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizers and high-quality seeds, to make an improvement on the quality of her output and boost her income, and thus enable her to pay school fees for her children.

Rispa awaits your kindness. She is very thankful to you in advance for taking precious time to read her profile, and hopes to receive your help and support.
