Rosemary's story

Rosemary, 38, is a repeat Kiva borrower. She lives in Vihiga, Kenya, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a resourceful woman who has been a farmer for the past five years. Through farming, she has been able to meet her family’s enormous needs. She has been knocked down several times by life’s failures, but she keeps on going.

Rosemary is seeking a loan to buy cereals, which she plans to resell to make more income for her family. Rosemary wants to make the upcoming holidays very colorful for her family with the profits that she will make from these ventures. Juhudi Kilimo is a key player in the Kenyan agricultural sector, serving to support farmers and micro-entrepreneurs financially to ensure sustenance and business continuity. Kindly support Rosemary with a loan today, to light up her flames of hope for a better future.
