Lilian's story

Women make a very major contribution in a country’s development, and this explains why the world celebrates them every month of March. Lilian is a 46-year-old mother of three children who lives in Eldoret, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis. She is a mixed farmer with ten years of farming experience. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

Lilian 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. Like any other determined woman in her home village, Lilian is looking forward to a brighter future.
