Margaret's story

Margaret is a 51-year old mother living in Nyeri, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be and enjoy the beautiful climate, observing the Great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past 32 years. Through farming, she has been able to change her family reputation.

Margaret is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she plans to use in improving her production enabling her to make more income for her family this new year 2021.

Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interests on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of smallholder farmers through providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty.
