Stella's story

Stella is a 45-year-old mother of three children living in Maua, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be and enjoy the beautiful climate, observing the Great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region. She is a mixed farmer with 20 years of farming experience.

The major impediment to the development of small hold farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support small holder farmers in Kenya through financing therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Stella is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her production making more profit to support her family during this hard economic period. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that has been brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
