Rael's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farming inputs to improve her production.

Rael's story

Rael is a 68-year-old mother living in Litein, a town that hosts elite Kenyan athletes. She is a woman with fifteen years of farming experience. Thanks to her work, passion, and determination, she has given her family a solid reputation. Rael is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs to improve her production.

Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest 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.

Rael is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.
