Rida's story

Hello world! Meet Rida (39-years-old mom of six), a smallholder farmer based in Eldoret, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favors large-scale grain farming, dairy and crop farming. She is a wife and the mother of lovely children. Rida has managed to send her children to school, thanks to the profit that she gets from her mixed farm. She chose to join Juhudi Kilimo to have access to loans that smallholder farmers in Kenya are typically deprived of due to the nature of their economic activity and meager incomes.

Rida is requesting a loan through the Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase poultry. She has undergone training on loan management and is educated about how to utilize loan funding. This has boosted her confidence about how she intends to spend the money and realize returns. Rida will use her loan to generate enough income to take care of high farming costs and expand her agricultural enterprise.
