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

A loan helped a single woman borrower with good credit standing to buy farm inputs to improve her productivity, leading to increased profits to support her children until they finish school.

Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth (45 years pictured above in her house) is a single mother of three from a remote village in the Kerugoya area of Kenya, a favorable area for farming. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a good quality education.

Elizabeth has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She earns additional income from a personal business. She never had a formal education and is content with the farming lifestyle. Each morning, Elizabeth wakes up to milk her cows. This is what she does best. She sells milk from her cows in the local market, and the income received is what she uses to educate her children.

Elizabeth wants to reap more profits by taking advantage of her area's favorable weather patterns, the good road network in her village, good soil, and a ready market for crops products.

She is seeking a loan of KES 100,000 (Kenya shillings) to buy seeds and improve her crop farming on her farm. Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva to help hardworking single moms like Elizabeth make their farming dreams come to reality, through training and loan financing. Please help this single woman, who has dreams and goals to achieve.
