Jane's story

Jane is a 48-year old mother of two children living in Nyahururu, an area endowed with natural beauty. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past 25 years. Through farming, she has made meaningful life accomplishments.

She is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her production, improving her farming returns and thus turning her life around.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Jane hopes that with the income she makes she will give her family a solid reputation.
