Veronica'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 fertilizer to grow more crops and make more profit for her family.


Veronica's story

Veronica is a 36-year old mother of two school-going children living in Engineer, a town that supports agricultural production. Her primary sources of income are crops and animal farming. The Engineer area is a favorable area for farming, so she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer for growing more crops.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs (fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides) is the pillar of the 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 than earlier before.

Her goal is to improve her living conditions and secure the future of her children. Her biggest dreams are to be able to support her family by herself, to become independent, and to buy a home.

Be inspired to support her with a loan this day.
