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

A loan helped to buy quality farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer, for this mom to increase her crops’ yields.

Jane's story

Hello special people, Merry Christmas wishes from Jane, a repeat borrower and mother from Kerugoya, a town where the main economic activities include agricultural processing. Jane lives with her family and supports them using the proceeds of her farming. She is the major breadwinner in her household. On the farm, she has dairy cows and a small garden.

Filled with determination to better her family's conditions, while not being deterred by her marital and financial status, Jane has never lost her dream of wanting to achieve. Today, she is kindly seeking another loan to buy quality farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer to increase her crops’ yields.

Being a woman makes accessing funds in Africa very challenging, especially around Kerugoya. Jane feels relieved knowing that institutions such as Kiva help hardworking women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, to secure her children’s future, and scale up to the heights of prosperity.
