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


Magret's story

Magret is a 36-year-old mother of three children living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a mixed farmer with 15 years of farming experience. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

Magret is seeking this loan to buy cereals, which she plans to resell to 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.

Support Magret with a loan as the world celebrates women.
