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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides, in order to improve her harvest.

Doris's story

Doris (39) is the major breadwinner of her family, and she lives in the Meru area of Kenya. She is blessed with lovely children who are her greatest motivators. She perseveres because she wants to provide a better future for them.

Doris has always had an affinity for farming. She practices dairy and crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why Doris is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs.

Through this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality seeds, good fertilizers, and pesticides that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques and high-quality seeds, which will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profits.

Doris's dream is to continue to grow her mixed farm and thus tell the story that, thanks to the dedicated Kiva employees and the wonderful Kiva lenders and the help of Juhudi Kilimo, she was able to improve her farm productivity.
