Rose's story

Dear lender, your support through lending has played a vital contribution in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rose is a returning Kiva borrower. She is a mixed farmer, who has been farming for the past five years. She has four children, who are all in school.

The main impediment to the development of small hold farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support small holder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Rose is requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva in order to buy fertilizers and certified seeds, which she will use to improve her production and make more profits for her family during this tough time brought about by Covid-19. Through this loan, Rose expects to increase her crop production, which will translate into an improved harvest and a higher income. Thus, this loan will permanently change Rose's living standards.

Support Rose at this time, when the Covid-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.
