Emily's story

Emily is a 50-year-old mother of three school-going children living in Bomet, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. Her work is to raise dairy animals and grow different crop varieties. She has farmed for many years.

Agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, upgrading the kind of inputs used. There is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. These include high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer.

Emily is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business. Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her area, is very challenging. But Emily feels relieved there are institutions such as Kiva helping enterprising women like her.

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, secure her children’s future, and buy a home.
