Hellen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy quality farm supplies, such as fertilizers, which she will use to grow more crops.

Hellen's story

Hello, Kiva community! The planting season is here with us!

The attractive smile above introduces you to Hellen, a 35-year-old mother. She is a female farmer who lives in Kitale, Kenya. She loves her farm and is very passionate about it. She takes care of her farmstead with her husband.

Hellen is kindly seeking a loan to buy farm supplies and increase her crop farming success. With the loan, she will buy quality farm supplies such as seeds and fertilizers, which she will use to grow more crops.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her area, is very challenging, but Hellen feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her.

Hellen is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself.

Be part of this mother's life by lending to her!
