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

A loan helped a mom with good credit history to buy cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for crop cultivation.

Veronica's story

Wonderful Kiva lenders! The remote town of Makutano is home to Veronica, age 44.

Veronica’s primary source of income is crop farming. She also earns some income from a personal business. She never had a formal college education and is content with the farming lifestyle.

The Makutano area is favorable for farming, so Veronica is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds. This will enable her to grow more crops to reap maximum profits and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially the Makutano area, is very challenging, but Veronica feels relieved knowing there are institutions, such as Kiva, that help enterprising women like her.

Veronica's goal is to improve her living conditions and secure the future of her children. Her biggest dreams are to be able to support her family by herself, to become independent, and to buy a home.

This loan will ensure a future rich harvest and income. Veronica is so grateful to her lenders for understanding and empowering a woman.
