Jane'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 and improve farm production to make more income to support her family.

Jane's story

Jane is 28 years old and lives in Makutano, a town struck by the 2007-8 crisis, when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a mixed farmer who has been farming for the past five years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful. Jane is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs and improve her farm production.

The major impediment to the development of smallhold farms in Kenya is a lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholders through financing in order to guarantee their survival. Jane hopes that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
