A loan helped to hire labor and buy farm supplies such as fertilizer and seeds.

Rose's story

Rose, a 43-year-old single mom of 3 school going children, is a small-holder farmer. She has been farming for many years. Over this time, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been cows and crops.

Rose is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm. She is an honest, hardworking, and loyal person who is dedicated to her farm because it allows her to support her family's needs.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Rose's standard of living is not comfortable. She has always wanted to increase her income by hiring labor, buying quality seeds and other farm essentials. She has requested this loan in order to make these investments and improve her crop farming.

Kenya's Eldoret area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Rose could increase her profits and satisfy the existing demand for crop products. Rose is grateful that Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like herself turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Rose is confident that this loan will help her, and she will be able to improve her standard of living through satisfying local demand for crop products.

Rose is a special person and is grateful for the help and support from her Kiva lenders. Thank you.
