A loan helped to start poultry farming in her home village so that she can make more income for her family.


Veronicah's story

Veronicah is a 46-year-old single mother of four children who has always believed that she has the ability to change her fortunes, thanks to her work and determination. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past twenty years.

Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centers, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities to different people to access loans. Through this loan, Veronicah plans to start poultry farming in her home village so that she can make more income for her family. Be inspired to support her with a loan this year to ignite her hope of a prosperous life.
