Felister's story

Felister is 36 years old and has two children. She lives with her family in Eldoret, a town that was significantly impacted by the 2007–2008 Kenyan civil violence crisis.

Felister is excellent proof that hard work and determination lead to success. In addition to farming, Felister engages in a grocery business, selling fruits and vegetables to make extra income for her family.

Felister is seeking this loan to buy more fruits and vegetables to make more income and support her family during this tough economic recession.

Unlike banks and other local money lenders that operate mainly in urban centers, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities for different people to access loans. Be inspired to support Felister with a loan today.
