but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to help a repeated Kiva borrower with good credit standing boost the quality of her produce.


Mary's story

Mary (63) is very hardworking and is a repeated Kiva borrower with a good credit rating. She hails from a remote village in the Eldoret area of Kenya. This area has tough living conditions and to survive you must have tough skin. But Mary has defied all odds and has chosen to work hard so that she can meet the requirements of her loving family. She is the major breadwinner.

Mary practices farming and also runs a small personal business. She works on her farm, growing trees and vegetables and rearing dairy cows and poultry. She has not been using farming inputs like nutrient-rich fertilizers and seeds.

Mary has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to purchase farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to boost the quality of her produce, increase her profits and elevate her standard of living.

This loan to Mary will have a lasting impact in her heart and she will forever be indebted to the lenders.
