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

A loan helped to buy quality farming inputs to improve her corn crop.

Hellen's story

Hellen is 28 and mom. She lives with her family in Kerugoya, one of the most amazing places that Mother Nature has given birth to.

Hellen has been a mixed dairy and crop farmer for the past few years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

Hellen is seeking this loan to buy farming 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.

Hellen is hopeful that Kiva lenders are able and willing to respond positively to her loan request.
