Emily's story

Emily (a repeat kiva borrower) is a 32-year-old mother and an icon of success when it comes to mixed dairy and crop farming. She is very hardworking and always desires of giving her family a better life. Apart from farming, Emily is also a cereals trader who injects passion and determination in her everyday farming activities.

Emily is seeking this loan to buy more cereals which she plans to resell and make more profit to support her family. She believes that the extra income that she makes will be very useful in supporting her family during this global economic recession. Be inspired to support Emily today with a loan. The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is a lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with kiva, is working hard to support small holder farmers in Kenya through financing therefore guaranteeing their survival. She is hopeful of your warm response to this loan.
