Martha's story

Success is not an overnight sensation and that is why Martha (pictured above) perseveres every day of her life. She is a single mother of two children who has farmed for the last thirteen years. Martha has passed through many of life’s challenges but she never gives up.

Martha is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders to buy farming inputs which she plans to use to improve her production and make more income to support her family during this time when the world is focused on combating Covid-19. One objective that Juhudi Kilimo aims to fulfil is increasing the ease of accessing farm inputs and income generating assets for farmers. Through the intervention of Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, fertilizers, pesticides and other important farm inputs have become as accessible for members as buying a bottle of water. Martha hopes that Kiva lenders will be inspired to support her with a loan.
