Ruth's story

Ruth is a 33-year-old mother of two school-going children. They live in Eldoret, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. Ruth is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past few years, enabling her to meet the enormous demands of her family.

Ruth is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to improve her production and make more income to support her family. One objective that Juhudi Kilimo aims at fulfilling is increasing farmers' ease of accessing farm inputs and income-generating assets. Through the intervention of Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, fertilizers, pesticides, and other important farm inputs have become more accessible.

Support Ruth at this time when the Covid-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.
