A loan helped to hire more labor on her farm so that she can improve her production and make more income for her family.


Elika's story

Elika is a 57-year old mother living in Vihiga, a land of seemingly never-ending beauty. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past ten years. Through farming, she has been able to meet the enormous demands of her family.

She is seeking this loan to hire more labor on her farm so that she can improve her production and make more income for her family. Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centres, 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. Be inspired to support Elika with a loan to give her hope of future success during this time when the world is in the middle of a global pandemic.
