but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as seeds and organic fertilizer, to produce a good harvest and eventually use the profits to support her children's education.

Ann's story

Ann is a 29-year-old mom of 3 school-going children. She loves agricultural production because it is her only way of providing for her family. She is a mother who is working hard to make the world a better place for her family.

Ever since she started farming, Ann has made tremendous steps in her life. Ann’s determination to persist without giving up hope is her major weapon in fighting poverty. She works hard to meet the needs of her small family, including her children and her farm. She is a rural farmer from the Nandihills area of Kenya. However, she is also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing different crops.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning those farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya.

Ann is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her to fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan. She also hopes to improve the condition of her house.
