Eunice's story

Greetings from Maua, Kenya!

This is Eunice, a mother of five children living in Maua, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a mixed farmer who has farmed for the last twenty years.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya and especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas. Access to modern, quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Eunice is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. Through this intervention, she will be able to improve the quality of her farm products and attract more buyers, leading to more profits.
