Salina's story

Salina is a mother of five children. She is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Eldoret area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing him with a good-quality education.

On her farm, Salina grows crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business. Salina was not lucky enough to attend any secondary school institution. Her survival depends only on the knowledge and skills in farming gained from her parents.

The Eldoret area has good climatic conditions that favor crop farming. That is why Salina is seeking a loan to hire laborers and buy farm supplies such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a smallholder farmer and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging. Salina feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. Through your loan, all of Salina's dreams will be fulfilled.
