Esther's story

Esther is a 56-year-old mother living in Nyahururu, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a mixed sheep and crop farmer who has farmed for the past few years. Esther has always invested in keeping her family progressing.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, thereby guaranteeing their survival.

Currently, Esther is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs such as organic fertilizers, which she will use to improve her production and earn more income for her family.
