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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs to improve his production and make more income for his family.


Reuben's story

Reuben is 66 years old and lives in Litein, a town that was significantly stuck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. He has farmed for the past ten years enabling him to be able to support his family.

Reuben is asking for this loan to buy farming inputs to improve his production and make more income for his family. Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centres, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities to different people to access loans.

He is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
