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

A loan helped to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her crop farm, making more profits for her family.

Peris's story

Peris is a 60-year-old farmer living in Kapsowar, a town where one of the main economic activities is agricultural processing, particularly in dairy and corn. Through experience based on curiosity and her natural abilities, Peris has emerged as one of the most respected farmers in her village. She is a crop and dairy farmer.

Today, Peris is seeking a loan of 20,000 KES, which she will use to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to expand her corn crop farm. By scaling up her business, Peris will reduce production costs relatively and increase her output. All this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill.

Unlike most microfinancers in Kenya that have imposed very complicated procedures on fund acquisition, thereby discouraging smallholder farmers, Juhudi Kilimo is working closely with Kiva to make loan acquisition for a smallholder farmer easy and convenient.

Peris believes that, through the loan, she will turn her family's lives around and be able to give them a happy life. This woman is worth supporting. She won’t disappoint.
