A loan helped to buy farming inputs and improve her farm production.


Bornice's story

Bornice is a 53-year old single mother of two children living in Litein, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. Bornice is a mixed dairy and horticulture farmer who has farmed for fifteen years. Bornice is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs and improve her horticultural farm production, thus supporting her family during this health crisis.

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainties and disrupting food supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is in the front line combating this pandemic by supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs in this difficult period. Bornice is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Support her with a loan today to aid her in meeting her resolutions for the year 2021.
