Betty's story

Betty is a 28-year-old single mother of one child in school living in Nakuru, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming and dairy farming. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past many years, enabling her be able to support her family. Betty is seeking a loan in the amount of 30,000 KES, which she will use to pay for farm inputs, such as seeds, and in order to grow more crops on the farm. It takes a lot for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business. With your help, Betty will be able to cover the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion. A significant portion of the profit will be plowed back into the business to fuel growth as she sets a good foundation for her family. She is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
