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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her production this first quarter of 2021.


Esther's story

Esther (40) is a mother of four school-going children living in Nyamira, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya.

Although she is a poor smallholder farmer, she has never given up on her dream of wanting to succeed.

Esther is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her horticulture crop production this first quarter of 2021.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, and especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas. Esther is hopeful that Kiva lenders are able and willing to respond positively to her loan request.
