Rose'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, which she plans to use to increase her production and make more income for her family.


Rose's story

Rose is 50 years old and lives in Vihiga, a land of seemingly never-ending beauty. She is a mixed farmer who has farmed for the past year. Through farming, she has made great accomplishments in her family.

Rose is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs, which she plans to use to increase 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, fertilizers and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement of inputs availability than earlier before. Rose is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.
