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

A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for crop cultivation for this woman with a good credit history.

Ann's story

Ann (45) is a smallholder farmer, a wise farmer whose neighbours and fellow farmers respect as a mentor. She is a grandmother who farms a small plot of land in the green, lush hills near Kitale in Kenya. Like many other farmers in the region, she grows different crops. With time, the fertility of her land has started to dwindle, and her crop yields are decreasing with each season. Ann’s farmland has also been affected by weeds.

Ann is currently requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to buy fertilizers and high-quality seeds. Through this loan, Ann expects to increase her crop production, which will translate into an improved harvest and a higher income. This loan will thus change Ann's living standard.

She is confident that if you invest in her business, 2020 will be a great year for her.
