Alice's story

Alice is a 64-year old mother of four children living in Siongiroi, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past forty years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful. Alice is requesting this loan to buy cereals which she plans to resell and make more income for her family. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interests on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of smallholder farmers through providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Be inspired to support Alice with a loan today to light up her flames of hope for a better future.
