Betsy's story

Betsy (a repeat Kiva borrower) is 46 years old and lives in Bomet, a town that hosts elite Kenyan athletes. She is a mother of two children and has farmed for the past 10 years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

She is seeking this loan to buy cereals, which she plans to resell and make more income for her family during this time when the world is focused on combatting COVID-19. Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centres, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities to different people to access loans. Be inspired to support Betsy with a loan today to light up her flames of hope for a better future.
