Mary's story

Mary is a 47-year-old mother who is determined to paint a beautiful picture of her future. She lives in Nyahururu, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She is a mixed farmer with many years of farming experience. Through farming, Mary has turned her life around.

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. Mary is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her farm production, which has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Kindly support Mary in this season.
