Vivian's story

Vivian is a 23-year-old mother of one child, living in Kapcherop, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. Her family’s main source of income is selling milk produced by their dairy animals. Vivian also engages in other agricultural activities, all of which are aimed at improving their standard of living.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in input availability.

Vivian 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. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family. She hopes to improve the conditions of her house.
