Jeptum's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to start an agro vet business that will help her generate more income to support her family during this tough period.
Jeptum is a 51-year-old mother of one child living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly stuck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. For the past twenty years, Jeptum has made enormous accomplishments in her life through farming. She is seeking this loan to start an agro vet business that will help her generate more income to support her family during this tough period. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is a central actor in rural areas working to reduce poverty in Kenya, especially among women. Jeptum is optimistic that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request as the world prepares to celebrate International Women’s Day.
