Charity's story

Charity, aged 41, is a person who truly loves her family. She is a farmer who has been in agribusiness for a long time and has never thought of doing any other job. Charity’s primary source of income is crops.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include land acquisition and inputs, the costs of which have skyrocketed. To meet the high cost of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures on loan disbursements.

Charity has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to buy farming inputs, such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, to greatly improve her farm yield and earn more income to care for her family. With this loan, Charity expects to increase her crop production, which will translate into a good-quality and high yield. Her living standards will be changed completely.

Charity and her family are so grateful for the impact that this loan will have on their lives.
