Sharon's story

Hello, Kiva community! Sharon (27) is a hardworking Kiva borrower farmer from a remote village in the Nandi hills area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a good-quality education.

Sharon has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. The Nandi hills area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 50,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seed. This will enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Nandihills, is very challenging, but Sharon feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself.

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.

Kindly support this Kiva borrower who has a good credit rating score!
