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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and quality fertilizers so this zealous mum can use the profits to improve her farm.

Gladys's story

Gladys’ story is of an honest woman who gives everything to raise her lovely family. With very few resources, she has pulled through. Gladys (30) is a responsible and diligent smallholder dairy and crop farmer from the Litein area, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises.

Her work brings home important income, and she gets help with the work from her family members.

Gladys is humbly seeking a loan to purchase quality farm inputs. Gladys will use the money from your loan to buy important supplies such as quality seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to manage weeds and preserve harvested produce.

Gladys is optimistic that this year's harvest will be better than last season's. Income from the dairy business will be used to make the initial loan repayments until the crops are harvested and sold. Most microfinance organizations, particularly in the Litein area of Kenya, don’t give loans to smallholder farmers, but Juhudi Kilimo is different.

Juhudi Kilimo is expanding into this market and is happy to provide Kiva lenders with the opportunity to support Kenyan smallholder farmers. Be inspired and make a loan!
