Getra's story

Getra (pictured alongside her husband) is a 25-year-old mother living in Kitale, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain, dairy, and horticultural farming. She is the champion of hope in her family. Getra is a mixed-dairy and crop farmer with ten years of experience. Through farming, she has been able to meet the enormous demands of her family.

The Covid-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainties and disrupting food supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo in partnership with Kiva, is on the front line in combating this pandemic through supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs during this difficult period. Getra is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her production and make more income to support her family. Getra is optimistic that Kiva lenders are going to respond positively to her loan request. Be inspired to support her with a loan today.
