but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Margaret's story

Margaret is a 42-year-old single mom of 3 school-going children. They live in Nyeri, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale crop farming. She is a very hard-working woman who is living proof that hard work and perseverance lead to success. Margaret has been a mixed farmer for many years. Through farming, she has turned her life around.

Margaret is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her production so that she can make more income to support her family. Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, since it is among the central actors in the rural areas.

As the world struggles to combat COVID-19, Margaret is hopeful that the Kiva lenders are going to honor her with a loan.
