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


A loan helped to buy farming inputs which she plans to use to improve her production and make more income for her family.


Lucy's story

Lucy is a 44-year-old mother of one child living in Thika, a town where the main economic activities include agricultural processing, particularly in horticulture and pineapple. She is a mixed farmer who has farmed for the past ten years. Through farming, she has made meaningful accomplishments in her life.

Lucy is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she plans to use to improve her production and make more income for her family. Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya and especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas. Lucy is hopeful that Kiva lenders are going to respond positively to her loan request.
