Emily's story

Emily is a 39-year-old mother whose golden smile can urge a toddler to take a first footstep. She lives in Eldoret, a town surrounded by land with vast agricultural potential, numerous small farms and large agricultural enterprises.

Despite growing up in hardship and facing the blunt edge of life, Emily kept her dream of wanting to succeed in life alive. Today, she is a farmer who has gathered much experience and who has all the farming techniques at her fingertips. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has worked for many years.

Emily is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs such as certified quality seeds to improve her farm and eventually, through increased profits, to improve her standard of living.

Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership to improve the lives of smallholder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save.
