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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her production that has been negatively affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.


Agnes's story

Agnes (a repeat kiva borrower) is a 60-year old mother of two children. She lives in Nyamira, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is a mixed farmer who has farmed for the past ten years. Through farming, she has made tremendous changes in her family.

Agnes is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her production that has been negatively affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The major impediment to the development of smallhold farms in Kenya is a lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, thereby guaranteeing their survival. Be inspired to light up Agnes' flames of hope for success with a loan.
