Janeth'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 cereals (such as corn and beans) from local farmers to sell at a profit and meet the expenses of her family.

Janeth's story

Hello, Kiva lenders! Janeth is a 35-year-old single mom of two school-going children. She is an accomplished farmer from the Bomet area of Kenya. As such, she commands a lot of respect. For the past few years, she has been involved in crop and dairy farming. Because of the immense knowledge she has about farming, farmers from her village seek technical advice from her on the best dairy farming techniques.

Janeth is the breadwinner for her family, which pushes her to work hard. Although she makes a profit from farming, she is not comfortable. She has always wanted to increase her income by selling cereals, so she is seeking this loan to buy cereals, such as corn and beans. Kenya's Bomet area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Janeth could satisfy the demand and increase her profits.

Accessing funds has been a challenge for Janeth, but she now feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva lenders. Together, they are helping hardworking female farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. This loan will ease her living, and she'll be able to develop her cereal business. Janeth will be very grateful to her lenders.
