Peninah's story

Hello, Kiva world!

Peninah is a 52-year-old mother of 5 children. She lives in Kitui, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential, with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises.

Peninah's passion and enthusiasm for farming have helped her to gain much respect in her village, and she is treated as a mentor by her village counterparts.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, upgrading the kind of inputs that are used in the sector today. There is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production, including high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers.
As an informed farmer, Peninah has taken this loan to buy farm inputs such as organic fertilizers to improve her crop production. This loan is an opportunity that she never had before. Her irregular income and lack of collateral security were the main drawbacks limiting her from accessing a loan in commercial banks.

Thanks to Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, the lives of Peninah and her family will be changed through this loan.
