A loan helped to buy a motorbike, which will be used to transport farm produce to the nearest market for increased profits.

Lynette's story

Lynette is 39 years old and has three children. She lives in Meru, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be to enjoy the beautiful climate and observe the great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region. Lynette is a mixed farmer who has been supporting her family using the income she earns from her farm.

Ever since she started farming, Lynette has made tremendous steps in her family. She is requesting this loan to buy a motorbike, which will be used to transport produce from her farm to the nearest market.

Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centres, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities for different people to access loans. Support Lynette with a loan today to give her hope of a better future.
