Vitaline's story

Vitaline is a 29-year-old mother of three children who are in school. She lives in Kapsowar, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential, with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. Failure has never crossed her mind. Vitaline is always thinking of success.

Access to quality farm inputs is the pillar of an agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, which is a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, they can attest that there has been a significant improvement in input availability.

Vitaline will use this loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, to grow more corn. As a result, she can reap maximum profits and expand her crop business.

Juhudi Kilimo is a key player in the Kenyan agricultural sector, serving to support farmers and micro-entrepreneurs financially to ensure their sustenance and business continuity. Be inspired to support Vitaline with a loan on this day.
