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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her production and make more income to support her family.


Nelly's story

Ever-smiling Nelly is a 29 year old mother of 2 school-going children living in Nandihills, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a person who has freed her mind so that she can make more progress. Nelly has been a mixed dairy and crop farmer for the past many years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

Nelly is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs. She will use these to improve her production and make more income to support her family during this time when the world is fighting very hard to combat Covid-19.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, who are the central actors in the rural areas.

Nelly is hopeful that Kiva lenders are able and willing to respond positively to her loan request.
