Lilian's story

Lilian is a 33-year-old single mother of one child living in Nyamira, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer, who has farmed for the past ten years. Through farming, she has made meaningful accomplishments.

Lilian is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her production and make more income for her family. Access to modern-quality farm inputs (fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides) is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, 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, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in input availability.
