Emily's story

Emily is a 51-year-old mother of two living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly stuck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. Emily has been supporting her family with the income that she obtains from her mixed farm. Like any other African woman, she wants to give her family the best.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya and especially among women who are the central actors in the rural areas. Emily is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she plans to use to improve her production and earn more income for her family. With a loan to Emily this year, she will be able to achieve her resolutions for the year 2021.
