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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs and improve her farm production, thus supporting her family during this health crisis.


Nelly's story

Nelly is 34 years old and resides in Kitale, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She has three school-going children under her care and has farmed for the past few years. Through farming she has made meaningful accomplishments for her family.

Nelly is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs and improve her farm production, thus supporting her family during this health crisis.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, thereby guaranteeing their survival.

Supporting Nelly with a loan will be key to helping her face the financial crisis that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
