Florida's story

Meet Florida, who is a 45-year old single mother who has four children. Florida has been supporting her family through mixed farming for the past twenty years. Thanks to her determination and desire for success, she has made her life meaningful.

The Covid-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainty and disrupting food supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is at the forefront in combating this pandemic through supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs in this difficult period.

Florida is seeking this loan to buy quality farming inputs so that she can improve her production, making more profit to support her family during this hard economic period. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that has been brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. A loan to her will be a proper way of uplifting her during this period when the world is preparing to celebrate International Women’s Day.
