but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a single mom to improve her tea crop production.

Gladys's story

Gladys is a single mother of two children. She is very focused and determined towards giving her family a solid reputation. She moves from pillar to post to ensure that her family never lacks anything.

Gladys' main income source is crop production, which she has been practicing for the last few years.

The biggest problem that farmers from Gladys' village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.
Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Nandi hills like Gladys now can buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs to use on their farms.

Gladys is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer. Your loan will enable her to improve her tea crop production through the use of quality farm inputs.
This intervention will help Gladys meet the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan and to improve the quality of life for her family.

Gladys hopes to improve the conditions of her house. Kindly and humbly lend to a woman smallholder farmer and light up her flames of hope for success!
