Gladies's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy high-quality farming inputs, such as fertilizer, to help a humble mom improve her crop farm, thus, improving her profits.

Gladies's story

Special people in the Kiva community!

Gladies (a repeat borrower) is an optimistic woman, who has always desired to achieve. She knows that this will be possible through hard work and determination.

Gladies is a mixed farmer living in Litein, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands, which favor large-scale grain, dairy, and horticultural farming.

Gladies was born into a family where farming skills were passed on from one generation to another. She did not have any alternative way of earning an income, so she ventured into farming.

Through continuous involvement in crop and animal farming. Gladies feels inconvenienced by the services of financial institutions around her, especially when she is in need of an urgent loan.

That's why Gladies is seeking the intervention of Juhudi Kilimo, in collaboration with Kiva, to help her raise capital to buy high-quality farming inputs, such as fertilizer, to help her improve her crop farm.

Support Gladies at this time, when the Covid-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.
