A loan helped a single mom to buy farm inputs such as seeds and quality fertilizers to improve her crop farming.

Faith's story

Beautiful, elegant Faith is a 33-year-old single mother of three school-going children living in Eldama Ravine, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. Faith has been involved in sheep and crop farming for the last few years.

Faith loves farming, for it's her only way of securing a living. She dreams that through farming, she'll be able to pull out of poverty and see to it that all her family members succeed. She's a visionary and keen to ensure that she keeps progressing.

Access to modern, quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seeds allocated by the government are far below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there's been a significant improvement in input availability.

Faith is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizers to boost the quality of her crop farm, earn more profits, and elevate her standard of living. She plans to use the profits to repay the loan and improve her living conditions.
