Ann's story

Meet Ann, a 34-year-old. She is a Kiva borrower who has made tremendous steps since she was introduced to Kiva lenders. Her triumphs will inspire you.

Given the fact that she had a poor childhood, Ann’s rise to the ranks of farming success is a true inspiration to many farmers living in Kerugoya, Kenya. She has been practicing farming for many years. Through agriculture, she has made her life more meaningful and is now deriving maximum pleasure from it.

In Kerugoya, Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs which have skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions that sometimes impose very complicated procedures in distributing loans.

Ann is requesting a loan to purchase farming inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers to improve her crop farm yield. She will generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the conditions of her house.

Lenders, kindly do not hesitate to lend to her.
