Vancy'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 plans to use to increase her production and make more profits to support her family.


Vancy's story

Vancy is a 39-year-old mother of three children. She lives in Eldama Ravine, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. Vancy is a mixed farmer with 15 years of farming experience. Through farming, Vancy has been able to change her family’s reputation.

Vancy is requesting this loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to increase her production and make more profits to support her family. Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool to reduce poverty in Kenya and especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas.

Vancy is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.
