Hellen's story

Hellen, 57, portrays a sense of responsibility, self-sacrifice, and love for her work, her farm, and her cute children. She lives in Kitale, Kenya.

The biggest problem that Hellen has is the high cost of farm inputs that are necessary to improve the quality of her produce. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kitale. Through these financial services, farmers can now buy assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Hellen is using this loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides to use on her farm and improve the quality of her produce. This will enable her to increase her profit, repay the loan, and improve her life. She feels grateful for this opportunity and appreciates her lenders for their support.
