Jacqueline's story

25-year-old Jacqueline is a single woman who lives in Eldoret, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be to enjoy the beautiful climate. She is an unstoppable woman when it comes to the pursuit of her dreams.

Jacqueline has been a mixed dairy and crop farmer for the past many years. Thanks to her hard work and determination, she has made her life meaningful. Jacqueline is now seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she plans to use to optimize her crop production at this time when the world is in the middle of a health crisis.

Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest 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, the movement of funds in rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty.

Your loan will go a long way in supporting this woman at this time when the world is fully focused on combating Covid-19.
