Lucia's story

Lucia is not new on this platform. She has borrowed previous loans and successfully repaid them. Lucia lives with her family in Kerugoya, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is 67 years old and has farmed for the past thirty years.

Lucia is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to expand her horticultural farm, which will enable her to make more profit to support her family. Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centers, 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. Be inspired to support Lucia today with a loan.
