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


A loan helped to purchase farming supplies, such as high-nutrient fertilizer and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family.


Faith's story

Faith is a determined woman who always works hard. She is an active woman who works in agricultural activities, a skill that she learned from her parents.

In addition to engaging in some small business activities, Faith has been a very hardworking mixed farmer, growing maize and keeping dairy cows. Although she has faced many ups and downs in her quest for success, she has never lost her hope of becoming successful.

Faith injects passion and determination into everything that she does. Though she dearly loves crops farming, her farm is at risk of attack by crop pests and diseases.

To a poor rural farmer, treatment of crop diseases requires an increase in the total operational costs to the extent that, in most cases, the amount of capital invested to produce the desired yield surpasses the output harvested. The remedy is to use certified seeds that are resistant to pests and diseases.

Faith is requesting a loan to purchase farming supplies, such as high-nutrient fertilizer and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield and make more profits from sales to support her family.

Unlike local moneylenders who charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims to improve the lives of smallholder farmers through providing them with loans and encouraging them to save.

Faith thanks all of her lenders for their support. Thank you.
