Agnes's story

To most people, March is just a month like any other, but to a woman like Agnes, it is a special month. The world celebrates women every March because they are special creatures. Hardworking women like her represent the best hope of getting sustainable development in Kenya. Agnes is a mixed farmer who has been in this line for the last few years. She has made meaningful accomplishments in life through farming. Her husband is very supportive in her farming.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such expenses include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have skyrocketed. Agnes has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders to buy farming inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to greatly improve her farm yield and earn more income to care for her family.

With this loan, Agnes expects to increase her crop production, which will translate into a high, good quality yield. Her living standard will be changed completely. Agnes and her family are so grateful for the impact that this loan will bring to their lives.
