Esther's story

Esther (a first-time Kiva borrower) is a 53-year-old mother who lives in Litein, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis.

She is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to optimize her production and earn more income to support her family.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has posed a serious challenge in many parts of the country, threatening many families. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is on the front lines of combating this pandemic by supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs during this difficult period.

A loan to Esther will be a proper way of uplifting her during this season.
