Gladys's story

Gladys is a 60-year-old mother living in Nyamira, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands, which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and horticultural farming. She is a very hardworking woman and living proof that hard work and perseverance leads to success. Gladys has been a mixed farmer for the past 15 years. Through farming, she has turned her life around.

Gladys is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to improve production and make more income to support her family. Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, and especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas. As the world struggles to combat Covid-19, Gladys is hopeful that Kiva lenders are going to honor her with a loan.
