Callen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as certified fertilizers to improve her tea crop harvest production.

Callen's story

For a number of reasons, Callen (63-year-old mom of 8 children, pictured in her tea crop farm) is working very hard in life. First, she is the only voice of hope for her children, and second, she does not want her children to suffer.

Callen is a mixed farmer who injects passion and determination in everything that she does. Her level of success has been fueled by, among other things, her desire to succeed, her work ethic and her passion. Callen has been a mixed farmer for many years, specializing mainly in dairy cows, and tea crop farming. Through selling her farm produce, Callen has gained access to many buyers in the market, which makes her feel accomplished.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, requiring improved farming inputs for effective production. As an informed farmer, Callen is borrowing from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders to buy farm inputs such as certified fertilizers to improve her tea crop harvest production and eventually improve her living conditions. Her living standard will change completely.

The loan you give to this woman will have a lasting impact in her heart.
