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


A loan helped to buy a cow that she will fatten and later sell at a profit.


Hellen's story

Hellen is a 31-year-old mother of 4 school going children. She lives in Siongiroi, a town that is home to many elite Kenyan athletes. She is a mixed animal and crop farmer who has farmed for the past many years, enabling her to comfortably support her family. Animal farming is one of the most profitable business ventures in her remote village.

Hellen is taking this loan to buy a cow that she will fatten and later sell at a profit.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya and especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas.

She is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.
