Gladys's story

Meet Gladys, a first-time borrower. She is a 28-year-old smallholder farmer living in Kenyenya, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain and crop farming. She has been a mixed dairy and crop farmer for the past few years. 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 on the front lines in combating this pandemic by supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs in this difficult period. Gladys is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her production and make more income to support her family. Support her at this time when the world is focused on combating the COVID-19 pandemic.
