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


A loan helped to buy cereals which she plans to resell and make more income for her family.


Jemima's story

Jemima is a 54-year old mother of three children living with her family in Vihiga, an area that has been endowed with natural beauty. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past ten years. Through farming, she has made meaningful accomplishments. Jemima is seeking 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. Jemima is hopeful that kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.
