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


A loan helped a widowed mom to buy more cereals to resell so that she can make more income to support her family.


Milkah's story

Milkah is a 31-year-old widowed mother. She is a borrower and a mixed farmer who has been in this business for the past many years, enabling her to support her family. In addition to farming, she is a cereal trader.

Milkah is seeking this loan to buy more cereals to resell so that she can make more income to support her family. She is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unlike banks and other local money lenders who operate mainly in urban centres, 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.
