Sylvia's story

Sylvia is a 27-year-old mother living in Makutano, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is a resourceful female borrower who will successfully repay all her Kiva loans. Thanks to her passion and work ethics, she has given her family a solid reputation.

Sylvia is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs which she will use to improve her production and make more income to support her family. 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.

Be inspired to support Sylvia today to light up her flames of hope for a better future.
