Doris's story

Doris’ curiosity and natural abilities make her a successful farmer. She works hard to meet the demands of her family, as well as the requirements of her farm. Doris has been working on her dairy and crop farm for many years. Through farming, she is able to meet the basic needs of her family.

The biggest problem that farmers from Doris's village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, which means their yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers like Doris from remote villages can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms. Doris is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and high-quality fertilizer. A loan will enable her to improve her crop production through the use of high-quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market, and in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family. To others, it might just be a mere loan, but to her it is the biggest opportunity she will have this season to change her life. Kindly lend to her today.
