Ruth's story

Ruth is a 34-year-old mother of 4 school-going children living in Kitale, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential, with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. Ruth is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past few years.

She is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to improve her production and make more income to support her family. Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centers, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities to different people to access loans.

Be inspired to support Ruth with a loan this day. She has thanked her lenders for their good will and support.
