A loan helped to buy cereals to resell to earn more profit to support her family.


Dorcas's story

Dorcas is a 31-year-old mother of four living in Eldoret, a town significantly stuck by the violent 2007–08 crisis in Kenya. She's farmed for 10 years, enabling her to support her family. She's seeking this loan to buy cereals to resell to earn more profit to support her family. Dorcas will use the profit to make to meet her resolutions in 2021.

Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centers, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities to different people to access loans.

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