Felistus's story

Felistus is a 29-year old mother of three children living in Kitui, the hometown of some of the world's most beautiful sculptures. She is a mixed farmer who has farmed for the past eight years. Through farming, she has turned her life around. Felistus is seeking the loan to buy farming inputs to improve production and make more income to support her family during the current global economic recession. Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas. Lenders' support to Felistus will help to light up her flames of hope for a better future.
