Florence's story

This is Florence (65), a Kiva borrower. She has been working on her farm for many years. She practices crop, poultry, and dairy farming. Through farming, Florence is able to meet the basic needs of her family.

Although she has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mom. Her farm has been producing poor yields. Florence wants to buy poultry and increase her poultry business to provide her with additional income to meet the rising costs of living. She loves poultry and she’s confident that she will earn revenue through selling eggs, chicks, and poultry meat.

Florence is inspired by Juhudi Kilimo's efforts at alleviating rural poverty through financing enterprising smallholder farmers like hers, and she has applied for a loan. She has also learned that Kiva lenders are willing and able to support her by lending to elevate her standard of living. This loan will have a lasting impact on her life and that of her family. Kindly consider lending to this industrious mom.
