Lucy'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 to improve her horticulture crop production.

Lucy's story

Lucy has three children who are attending school. She lives in Kerugoya, a town where the main economic activity is agricultural processing, particularly in horticulture. Lucy is 53 years old and has been a dairy and crop farmer for several years. She hopes to be able to support the education of her children.

Lucy is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her horticulture crop production and make more income to support her family. The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya by providing financing, thus guaranteeing their survival.
