Rodah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as seeds and fertilizers.

Rodah's story

Rodah (39) is a single mother, living in Eldoret, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. Rodah is a responsible and diligent smallholder farmer, who is involved in dairy and crop farming. Her work brings home important income. She gets help with the work from her family members.

Rodah is humbly seeking a loan to purchase quality farm inputs. She will use the money from your loan to buy important supplies, such as quality seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, to manage weeds and preserve her harvested produce. She also plans to use part of the money to pay laborers, loaders, and transporters.

She is optimistic that this year's harvest will be better than last season's. Income from the dairy business will be used to make the initial loan repayments until the crops are harvested and sold.

Most microfinance organizations, particularly in the Eldoret area of Kenya, don’t give loans to smallholder farmers, but Juhudi Kilimo is different. Juhudi Kilimo is expanding into this market and is happy to provide Kiva lenders with the opportunity to support Kenyan smallholder farmers.

Support Rodah during this tough time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
