A loan helped to hire more labor so that she can improve her farm production and support her family during this hard time.


Mercyline's story

Mercyline is a 23-year-old mother of two children living in Kenyenya, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is a hardworking woman who has farmed for the past ten years.

Mercyline is seeking this loan to hire more labor so that she can improve her farm production and support her family during this hard time. The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is lack of short-term credit facilities.

Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing therefore guaranteeing their survival.

She is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
