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

A loan helped to purchase farming inputs such as organic fertilizers to improve her production and support her family.

Nelly's story

Nelly is a 40-year-old mother and who always focuses on success. She is a crop farmer who has been in this business for many years.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Farmers can attest that, since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, there has been a significant improvement in input availability.

Nelly has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to purchase farming inputs, such as nutrient-rich fertilizers, to boost the quality of her banana produce, increase her profits, and elevate her standard of living.
