Mary's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Mary, a 48-year-old mom of 2 school-going children, is a borrower with a clean credit history. She comes from a deep remote village in the Meru area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start.

Mary has a farm where she grows crops. She also earns some income from a personal business.

The Meru area is a favorable one for farming so she is seeking a 100,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner Juhudi Kilimo to use in transporting her perishable crops to the market. Through the loan she will fetch more profits because her perishable products will be sold at a higher price.

Kindly lend to this hardworking mom with a perfect credit rating score!
