Alice's story

Dear Kiva community,

This is Alice, a 36-year-old mom of 4. She is polite, devoted, responsible and hardworking. Alice started practicing mixed farming a few years ago. She grows corn and keeps dairy animals. She has gained so much experience through these years of farming. She is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although Alice makes profits from farming, she is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income. She is seeking a loan to buy certified fertilizers in order to improve her corn farm. With this loan, Alice will be assured of a good harvest and this will translate into more profits and income. She wants what any mother would want for her family: a bright future.

Juhudi Kilimo is working closely with Kiva to make loan acquisition for a smallholder farmer easy and convenient. This is unlike most microfinance institutions in Kenya, which have imposed very complicated procedures in funds acquisition thereby discouraging smallholder farmers. Through this intervention by Juhudi Kilimo, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby, alleviating rural poverty.

Alice feels inspired to continue farming and motivated to improve her life now that she is a member of Juhudi Kilimo. You can support Alice in making her dreams come true with a loan.
