Teresia's story

Teresia (38, a single mom of 2 school-going children) is a woman who pursues her dreams without giving excuses. She is a forward-looking woman living in Embu, an area whose beautiful hills form vivid patterns and have been the training ground for some of the world’s most prominent athletes. Teresia is a mixed farmer with many years of farming experience.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas.

Teresia is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her production, making more profit to support her family during this hard economic period. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
