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


A loan helped a single mom to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.


Recho's story

When Recho (a 34-year-old single mom of two school-going children) realized that getting a white-collar job in her deep, remote village was proving to be futile, she decided to assemble all the resources that she had and invest in farming.

Recho refers to that decision as the best decision she made. Not only has she been able to feed her family, but she has been able to send her children to school in a move to empower them.

Recho is a hardworking mother. She obtains her income from dairy and crop farming.

The Eldoret area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 100,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a Kenyan woman, accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her village, is very challenging, but Recho feels relieved knowing there are institutions, such as Kiva, that help enterprising women like herself.

Recho is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, to secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.

This loan will surely have a lasting impact on Recho's future.
