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

A loan helped to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizer to expand her crop farm, generate more revenue and educate her children.

Salinah's story

Situated among the green hills surrounding Mount Kenya, Kapcherop is a land of never-ending beauty. It is home to many smallholder farmers in Kenya, Salinah (born in 1974 and a mom of 3 school-going children) being among them.

Salinah is a resourceful mother and an enterprising woman who injects passion and determination into her work and dreams of making the world a better place. Salinah has been in the business of farming for many years and says farming is the best activity she has ever engaged in.

Salinah enjoys farming as a way of giving her family a healthy lifestyle, as the Kapcherop region has a good climate for farming. Farmers like her are engaged in growing a variety of crops and raising livestock. Through experience, Salinah has emerged as one of the most respected farmers in her village.

Today, she is seeking a loan of 30,000 KES, which she will use to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizer to expand her crop farm.

Unlike most microfinance services in Kenya that have imposed complicated procedures that discourage smallholder farmers, Juhudi Kilimo is working closely with Kiva to make loan acquisition easy and convenient.

By scaling up her business, Salinah will reduce production costs and increase her output, which will be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill.

This woman is worth supporting, and she will not disappoint.
