A loan helped to buy more cereals and improve her cereal-trading business that has been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Zeddy's story

Zeddy (a repeat Kiva borrower) is a 58-year-old mother of two children. She lives in Siongiroi, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She is a mixed farmer who also practices cereal trading.

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat on the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainties and disrupting food-supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is on the front line in combating this pandemic through supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs during this difficult period.

Zeddy is seeking a loan to buy more cereals and improve her cereal-trading business that has been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that have been brought about by the pandemic.
