Esther's story

Esther is a 44-year-old mother of four children living in Siongiroi, an area that hosts elite Kenyan athletes. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past fifteen years. Through farming she has made her life meaningful.

Esther is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her production and make more income for her family.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs (fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides) is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in input availability than before.

Be inspired to support Esther with a loan today to light up her flames of hope for a successful year 2021.
