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

A loan helped a single mother to buy a motorbike to transport her farm goods to the nearest market.

Joy's story

Joy is a 34-year-old single mother of one child. She lives in Meru, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be and enjoy the beautiful climate, observing the Great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region.

Joy is seeking this loan to buy a motorbike which she will use to transport her farm goods to the nearest market. Unlike banks and other local moneylenders who operate mainly in urban centers, Juhudi Kilimo (a Kiva field partner) has extended its operations to the most remote areas of Kenya, creating opportunities for different people to access loans.

Be inspired to support Joy with a loan today to light up her flames of hope for a better future.
