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

A loan helped to buy seeds and other farm inputs to improve her crop farming, make profits and support her four children, who are all in school.

Rose's story

Rose (37, pictured in her side-hustle business) is a repeat borrower who is glad to greet Kiva lenders. This humble mother of four children is honest, hardworking, loyal and completely dedicated to her farming job.

Rose has been farming for many years and also does some business. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk and crops. Rose is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Rose is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds to plant and selling the crops after harvest. This is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as seeds, to improve her crop farming.

Kenya's Kapsowar area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Rose could increase her profits and satisfy the existing demand for crop products.

Rose is relieved that Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. She believes that this loan will be of help and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for horticulture crops. Kindly lend to her!
