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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs, which she will use to increase her production and make more profits for her five children.

Rose's story

Wonderful community of Kiva!
Rose is a 41-year-old mother of three school-going children. They are living in Nakuru, a town whose surrounding has numerous small farms, vast agricultural potential, and agricultural enterprises. Rose has been a mixed crop and dairy farmer for many years and makes great profits. Through her own effort and natural abilities, she is able to care for her family as the major breadwinner. She is a woman who’s not deterred by the difficult life situations that she has been through.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. In Kenya, which is a developing country, fertilizers and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement on inputs availability.

Rose is seeking a 70,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business. Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Nakuru, is very challenging.

However, Rose feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. Kindly lend to this hardworking woman!
