Dorcas's story

Dorcas (pictured above) is a hardworking mother living in Nyeri, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be and enjoy the beautiful climate, observing the Great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region. She is an unstoppable woman when it comes to the pursuit of her dreams. Thanks to her hard work and determination, she has made her life meaningful.

Dorcas is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use in optimizing her crop production at this time when the world is in the middle of a health crisis. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims to improve the lives of smallholder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, the movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Your loan will go a long way in supporting this woman at this time when the world is fully focused on combatting Covid-19.
