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


A loan helped to buy farm inputs which she plans to use to expand her crop production that has been significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.


Jelica's story

Jelica (62) is a woman living in Embu, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya.

Jelica obtains her income through mixed crop farming. She has supported her family through these enterprises for the past few years.

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

Jelica is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs which she plans to use to expand her crop production that has been significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
