Grace's story

Grace is a 50-year-old mother living in Kitale, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential, with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She has been a mixed farmer for the past 20 years.

Grace is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs, which she plans to use to improve her production and make more income to support her family. Kiva's lenders have spearheaded the rural growth in Kenya by supporting smallholder farmers in turning their dreams into reality. Grace is very forward-looking, and her goal for the season is to boost her crop production over the previous year. All this can be achieved through lenders’ help and goodwill. Women make a very major contribution to a country’s development, which explains why the world celebrates them every March.
