Grace'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 (fertilizers) to boost her tea yield and help improve her tea sales so that she can have enough money to improve her life as a single mom.

Grace's story

Grace (a 31-year-old, single mom, pictured on her tea farm) has broad experience in farming. Grace lives in a humble home in the town of Nyamira, along with her children. She has been working in agriculture for the past few years. She makes her income through selling from her farm, which includes tea and crops. She enjoys plowing her farm and watering her plants.

Grace understands farming activities including growing, irrigating, spraying, caring for and harvesting to earn income from her crops. She is a woman who has passion for her work and therefore inspires her village mates and her customers. In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, therefore upgraded inputs like high-quality seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides are needed.

As an informed farmer, Grace has borrowed from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders this emergency loan to buy fertilizers to improve her tea farm yields. With this loan, Grace expects to increase her tea crop production, which will translate into a high, good-quality yield. Her living standards will be changed completely. The loan you will give this woman will have a lasting impact in her heart.
