Flora's story

Hello, special people!

Flora is a 66-year-old mom of 4 who feels happy to be part of Kiva. She is a woman who lives in the countryside and is a mother who truly adores her children, for whom she has had to go through many adversities in her life. She lives in Bomet, an area endowed with natural streams.

Flora grows crops and raises dairy cows on her farm and produces dairy and crop commodities. As a result of the fluctuation of prices for crops and the change in industry trends, Flora has sought a way out. She has decided to start selling cereals in her local market. However, with her little savings, she is unable to purchase different varieties of cereals such as corn and beans. Her family will benefit from this loan since she will elevate their standard of living. This loan is, therefore, an opportunity that she never had before. Her irregular income and lack of collateral security were the main drawbacks limiting access to a loan in commercial banks.

Thanks to Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, the lives of Flora and her family will be changed through this loan.
