A loan helped to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizers, to boost her tea quality, earn more profit, and elevate her standard of living.


Faith's story

Faith is 33 years old and has three children. She lives in Kapsowar, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a farmer who has farmed for the past twenty years.

Access to modern, quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seeds allocated by the government are far below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there's been a significant improvement in input availability.

Faith is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizers, to boost the quality of her tea, earn more profits, and elevate her standard of living. She plans to use the profits to repay the loan and improve her living conditions. Click that lend button and be a source of hope this 2020 season!
