Judith's story

Judith(39) is an optimistic woman who loves and enjoys her life. Despite having gone through tough times in her quest for success, she only focuses on the positive things in her life. Judith is a warrior mom who is honest, dedicated, and gives everything to raise her children. With very few resources, she has pulled through.

Judith is a responsible and diligent smallholder farmer from a remote village. She is involved in dairy and maize farming, and she also has a side hustle business. Her work brings home important income. She gets help with the work from her family members.

Judith is seeking a loan to purchase quality farm inputs. She will use the money from your loan to buy important supplies such as seeds and fertilizers.

Judith is optimistic that this year's harvest will be better than last season's. Income from the dairy business will be used to make initial loan repayments until the crops are harvested and sold. Most microfinance organizations, particularly in her remote village, don’t give loans to smallholder farmers, but Juhudi Kilimo is different.

Juhudi Kilimo is expanding into this market and is happy to provide Kiva lenders with the opportunity to support Kenyan smallholder farmers. Be inspired; make a loan and turn Judith’s life around!
