Esther's story

Esther is a 44-year-old, single mom of two school-going children. She is a smallholder farmer. She is an honest, hardworking, and loyal person who is completely dedicated to her farming job, because she has a family to care for.

Esther has been farming for the last few years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered to be among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been crops.

Esther is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm. Although she makes a profit from corn farming, she is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying fertilizer, so that she can improve her corn crop harvests. She is seeking this loan to do just that: buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, and improve her corn farming.

Her remote village, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for corn products. This means that Esther could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for corn products there. She feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Esther believes that this loan will be of help and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for corn crops.
