Emily's story

Emily is 41 years old, a mom of three school-going children and a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Nandihills area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start by providing for their basic human needs.

Emily has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. The Nandihills area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a KES 70,000 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 farming business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her village is very challenging. Emily feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself. Be inspired and lend to her!
