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

A loan helped a single mom to purchase farming inputs to boost her production, increase her revenue and bring a positive impact in her family life.

Gladys's story

Gladys (36 single mom) is not a new borrower. She has borrowed previous loans and successfully repaid them. She is very happy for the positive impact that Kiva lenders have brought in her life.

She is a humble mother from Nakuru and an excellent example of a focused woman. Gladys is a mixed farmer who has been in this line of production for ten years now. She has made meaningful accomplishments in life through farming. Her clients enjoy the quality of milk and crops that she sells to them. The income she makes from selling milk and eggs is used to cover the basic needs of her family.

Gladys is living proof that personal accomplishments do not come by accident or from being born in a wealthy family.

The quality of Gladys’s crops has dwindled due to the use of poor farm inputs. Access to modern quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. Gladys will use this loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds in order to boost the quality of her produce. She is assured of a bumper harvest, which will open new markets for her crops and, subsequently, increase her profits. This will elevate her standard of living, as well as that of her beautiful child.

Be inspired this season and put a smile on her face.
