Salina's story

Salina, a 58-year-old mom of three school going children has never given up in the face of adversity.

She is a hardworking dairy and crop mom who has always struggled to sustain her family, being the major breadwinner. However with her perseverance and determination, she decided not to give up and ventured into farming. Today, thanks to her enthusiasm and natural abilities, she can secure one meal every day for her children.

The biggest problem that farmers from Eldoret face is lack of access to agricultural inputs, which means that those farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way 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 has been a significant improvement in input availability.

Salina is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizers and hybrid seeds to improve her farm's output and make profits to educate her children and also help her aging parents. She will generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family.
