Ruth's story

Meet Ruth, a borrower with good credit standing. She is a 41-year-old mother of seven school-going children living in Bungoma, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale grain farming, dairy, 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 line in combating this pandemic by supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs in this difficult period.

Ruth is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her corn crop 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.
