Rael's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a single mom to buy high-quality farming inputs such as fertilizer to help improve her crop farm.

Rael's story

Wonderful community of Kiva,

Rael is a 45-year-old single mother of three school age children who never loses hope of being successful despite the hardship that she has been through. She is a very hardworking woman who gives her best for her family.

Rael was born in a family where farming skills were passed on from one generation to the next. She did not have any other way of earning income, so she ventured into farming. Through continuous involvement in crop and animal farming, Rael is able to provide her family with meals at least once a day.

Rael has realized that there are very few farmers in her local village. She views this as a great opportunity for her to earn increased profits that would go beyond meeting the basic needs of her household. Rael feels inconvenienced by the services of financial institutions around her, especially when she is in need of an urgent loan. She is therefore seeking the intervention of Juhudi Kilimo in collaboration with Kiva to help her raise capital to buy high-quality farming inputs such as fertilizer to help her improve her farm. Rael thanks the entire Kiva community for their kindness.
