Josphine's story

Josphine is a 60-year old mother living in Matuu, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a humble mother who has worked for the past thirty-five years on her remote farm.

Josphine is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her production and make more income to support her family. Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centers, 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.
