Clarah's story

Clarah (a repeat Kiva borrower with a good credit standing) is 48-years-old and a proud mother of 4 school going children. For the past few years, she has been a hardworking mixed farmer who grows maize and keeps dairy cows. Clarah also engages in some small business activities. She is an active woman with skills that she inherited from her parents. Through her business activities, Clarah has been able to earn a decent and honest income.

Clarah also sells different crops. Although she makes a profit from farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing as much of a harvest lately due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds and the presence of pests and diseases.

Clarah is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, pesticide, and herbicide to expand her crop farm. She will use her loan to be assured of a bumper harvest that will mean more profits and income. She will be able to expand her enterprise. Clarah hopes you will consider her loan appeal, because it would mean a lot to her and her family.
