Everlyne's story

Hello Kiva lenders,

Everlyne is a 30-year-old smallholder farmer mom of two living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly stuck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is an honest mother who loves her children, warts and all. She is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of. She is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk and crops. Everlyne is very passionate about farming, and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Everlyne is not comfortable. She has always wanted to increase her income by buying quality inputs to plant so that she can sell more crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds: to boost the quality of her crop produce, earn more profits, and elevate her living standard. 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 for different people to access loans.
