Agnes's story

Agnes is a 52-year-old widowed mother of six children who are in school. She lives in Kitale, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the Rift Valley area of Kenya. Agnes is a mixed farmer with many years of farming experience. Thanks to her passion and work commitment, she has given her family a solid reputation.

Agnes is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her production in order to make more income to support her family. Unlike banks and other local moneylenders who operate mainly in urban centers, Juhudi Kilimo, a Kiva field partner, has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, thus creating opportunities for different people to access loans. Support Agnes so that she can make the upcoming festive season colorful for her family.
