Mercy's story

Mercy is a 38-year-old mother of 3 school going children who faces her challenges with boldness. She lives in Litein, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be, to enjoy the beautiful climate. Mercy is a mixed dairy and crop farmer with years of farming experience. Through farming, she has turned her life around.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit opportunities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Mercy is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her farm production, which has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kindly support Mercy in this quarter of 2021.
