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

A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for crop cultivation for this woman with a good credit history.

Grace's story

Grace (44-year-old mom of five children, four of whom are school-going) is a smallholder farmer from a remote village in Kapcherop. She is a skillful farmer with many years of experience. She is married to a fellow farmer.

Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing different crops.

The biggest problem that farmers from Kapcherop face is the huge deficit in terms of access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Kapcherop like Grace can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Grace is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life.

Grace appreciates you taking your precious time out of your busy schedules to check her profile and hopes for your support.
