Jane's story

Jane, 53, attributes her success to the support of Kiva lenders. She lives in a humble home in the town of Kitale, along with her family. She has been doing agriculture for many years now. She makes money selling products from her farm, including milk, sheep wool, and crops. She enjoys plowing her farm and watering her plants. Crop diseases pose a big challenge for her, and also poor productivity.

Jane is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs. With the loan, she plans to buy good-quality seeds and fertilizer, which will help increase soil fertility and productivity on her farm. Increased productivity will allow her to improve her quality of life and living standard. Through training from Juhudi Kilimo, she has learned about the culture of saving, and she plans to use the increased income to improve her farming.

This loan will go a long way in changing the life of Jane and her family. Like her, thousands of women smallholder farmers are waiting for your help. Take heart; make a loan!
