Beatrice'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 her farm production, thus supporting her children.

Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a 29-year-old mother of three school-going children living in Nyeri, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a mixed crop farmer who has farmed for many years.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Beatrice is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs and improve her farm production. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
