Irene's story

Irene, a repeat Kiva borrower, is a 36-year-old mother who has three school-going children. She is a hard-working woman living in Eldoret, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. Irene has farmed for the past twenty years, enabling her to support her family.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has posed a serious challenge in many parts of the country, causing a serious threat to many families. She is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs to improve her production and earn more income to support her family. Irene is hopeful that as the world struggles to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Kiva lenders will be inspired to support her with a loan.
