Lilian's story

Lilian is a 42-year-old mother of two children who lives with her family in Wote, the hometown of some of the world's most beautiful sculptures. Lilian has been a mixed farmer for the past twenty years. Thanks to her hard work and perseverance, she has given her family a solid reputation.

Lilian is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she plans to use to improve her production and thus make more income to support her family. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims to improve the lives of smallholder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Lilian is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request, especially during this tough period when struggling to combat COVID-19.
