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


A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and expand her crop farm.


Ann's story

Failure has never crossed Ann’s (a 32-year-old mom of four) mind, and that is why she thirsts for success. She hails from the Kakamega area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, Ann has managed to give her family a good start.

Ann has a farm where she grows crops. She also earns income from a personal business.

The Kakamega area is a favorable one for crop farming, so Ann is seeking a 106,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo. She will use the loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and expand her crop business.

Being a woman from a marginalized community and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Kakamega, is very challenging. Nevertheless, Ann feels relieved, knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself.

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, to secure her children’s future.
