Agnes's story

Agnes, a 32-year-old smallholder farmer mom of 4 school-going children, is known in her remote village in the Kitale area of Kenya for her captivating and beautiful smile. She is a very hard-working and self-driven mother. Agnes is known in her village for her undying and resilient nature.

Access to modern-quality farm supplies is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in the availability of inputs compared to previous years. The main challenge that Agnes has often complained of is the high cost of farming supplies in her area.

She has taken this loan so that she can buy quality farming supplies, such as certified seeds and rich nutrients, which she plans to use on her farm. With these supplies, Agnes will be assured of a good harvest, which will consequently reflect in her pocket.

Lenders, if there is someone you should lend to this season, then that person is Agnes!
