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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her production and support her family during this last quarter of 2020.


Emily's story

Emily is a 54-year-old mother living in Embu, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has been farming for the past twenty years.

Emily is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her production and support her family during this last quarter of 2020. The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the 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.

This loan will turn Emily's life around, and she will be able to make tremendous changes in her life.
