Leah's story

A positive attitude and confidence are key qualities that propel Leah (34), a single mom, in her day-to-day activities. She injects passion and enthusiasm in her work and is full of dreams and aspirations for her life.

Leah is a smallholder dairy and crop farmer in a remote village in the Eldoret, Kenya. The biggest problem that farmers in her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs such as seeds and fertilizer, which means that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Eldoret can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Leah is requesting a loan to buy inputs such as quality certified seeds and fertilizer so she can improve production on her farm. This intervention will help Leah fill the increasing demand for food in the marketplace and, in the process, generate more income to repay her loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family.
