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

A loan helped to buy more farm inputs and vegetables from other farmers to resell, in order to maintain her customers as her produce continues to grow.

Alice's story

Alice is a humble, single mother of one. As a single mother, she has to work very hard to meet her family's needs. Her business is farming and she enjoys it very much. What she loves most about it is when her produce does well and she makes good profits. This motivates her in her business as it is their source of livelihood for her and her family.

Alice is kindly requesting the loan to buy farm inputs for her business and she intends to use her profits to pay back her loan. She will also use part of her loan to buy produce from other farmers to sell in order to maintain her customers as she waits for her vegetables to grow. This loan will go a long way in uplifting her family’s living standards.

She is grateful for the loans that she has been able to receive from lenders through Kiva's field partner Eclof Kenya. Her last loan enabled her to buy a cow that now provides her with milk for herself and to sell. Her dream is to eventually build a home for her family, which save her the cost of renting.
