Jenifer's story

Jenifer is a 45-year-old mother of five beautiful children living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has been in this business for the past 20 years enabling her to be able to support her children.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the 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.

Jenifer is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her production and make more income for her family. She is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.
