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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizers, to enable her to grow more tea crops.

Loneah's story

Get to know Loneah, a 51-year-old smallholder farmer and a responsible and determined woman. This humble mother is from a remote village in the outskirts of the Nyamira region of Kenya. She is married to a hardworking farmer.

Loneah has a farm where she practices mixed farming. She earns her income by selling milk and tea to her neighbors and at the local market. Loneah never learned agriculture from any institution but has gained her knowledge from experience since her childhood.

The Nyamira area is a favorable one for farming, so Loneah is seeking a loan through Kiva's field partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, to enable her to grow more tea crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her village, is very challenging, but Loneah feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her.

She is always working to improve the living standards of her family, and she is confident that with your loan she will be able to achieve this goal.

Be inspired this season and lend to Loneah!
