Naomi's story

Naomi is a first-time Kiva borrower. She is 37 years old and has two children. She lives in Embu, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. Naomi works with plenty of determination so that she can achieve her dreams. On her farm, she grows crops and raises livestock.

In the modern world agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, which requires upgraded inputs for effective production. Although Naomi has been earning profits from farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing much of a harvest lately due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds, as well as to the presence of pests and diseases. For this reason, she is seeking a loan to buy seeds and fertilizer to improve her crop output. This will help this mother earn profits to support her family. Naomi is very thankful for this gesture of goodwill in her life.
