Betty's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her production and make more income for her family, assuring her children of a secure future.

Betty's story

Betty is a 50-year-old mother of five children who is very hardworking and determined to succeed. She is a crop farmer who also practices dairy farming. Through farming, Betty has sent two of her five children to school.

Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centres, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities to different people to access loans.

Betty has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders to buy farming inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to greatly improve her farm yield and earn more income to care for her family. With this loan, Betty expects to increase her crop production, which will translate into a high, good quality yield. Her living standards will be changed completely.

Betty and her family are so grateful for the impact that this loan will have on their lives.
