Mary's story

Mary is a 58-year-old widow living in Kerugoya, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a resourceful woman who has always been willing to support her family through all ups and downs that she goes through. Mary has made tremendous progress in her life, thanks to the profit that she makes through farming. Mary practices mixed dairy and coffee farming on her farm to help her support her family.

She is borrowing this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her coffee farm and make more profit to support her family. She is hopeful that Kiva lenders will extend their good will to her during this tough period. Mary has thanked Kiva lenders for their generosity.
