Sabina's story

Sabina is a 49-year-old mother of five children living in Maua, a town that was significantly stuck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is very positive in her approach to her farm decisions. She takes all responsibilities on her farm to heart and works towards her goals. She is determined to succeed and give her family a better lifestyle. Sabina obtains her income through mixed farming, work she has practiced for three years to support her family.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Sabina is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs, such as seeds, to improve her horticulture farming. Kenya's Maua area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Sabina could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for horticulture products that is there.

Sabina feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Sabina believes that this loan will be of help, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for horticulture crops and pay tuition fees for her child in school. Kindly lend to her!
