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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs to improve her productivity, leading to increased profits to support her family.

Florida's story

As the new planting season begins, Florida (a 32-year-old woman) has made resolutions, and one of them is to increase and scale up her farming productivity. She does crop and animal farming.

The Litein area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 150,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits and expand her business.

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

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and to secure her family’s future.

She is a borrower who has a good credit history and is worth supporting.

This loan will surely raise up her hopes and expectations for a better life.
