Monica's story

Step by step, Monica works very hard towards success. She is a 50-year-old mother of two children living in Wote, an area with hilly scenery that is good for camping and hiking. Monica has been a mixed dairy and crop farmer for the past seven years. Through these enterprises, she has been able to support her family.

Monica is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to improve her production and thus make more income to support her family. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of smallholder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Monica is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request, especially during this tough period when struggling to combat Covid-19.
