Peninah's story

Peninah is a 58-year-old mom of two school-going children. She is a farmer from a remote village in the Kapcherop area of Kenya. She is a skilled farmer with many years of experience under her belt.

Peninah is married to a fellow farmer. Her family's main source of income is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities and growing different crops.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in input availability compared to before.

Peninah is seeking a loan to buy farming supplies, such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to use quality supplies to improve her farm's production.

This boost will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market, and it will also generate more income so that she can repay her loan and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the condition of her home.

Kindly support Peninah to honour a smallholder woman farmer.
