Betty's story

Betty is a 41-year-old mother of four children. She lives in Nakuru, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential, with numerous small farms and vast agricultural enterprises. She is a woman with a clear vision and strategy of what she wants to achieve in her life. Betty is a married woman who is blessed with cute children. They live together as a happy family, with one common uniting factor: Betty. She keeps smiles on the faces of her family members, not only due to her tirelessness and selflessness in caring for them, but also for her passion to educate her children. Betty is open-minded and flexible in the face of change.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is far below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in inputs available. Betty has applied for this loan to buy quality certified seeds to start horticulture farming. She will reap maximum benefits and increase her profits, which she will use to pay tuition fees for her children. All of this can be achieved with the help and goodwill of lenders. Betty appreciates your support during this tough economic period.
