Philes's story

Meet Philes, a repeat borrower. She is 33 years old and the mother of three school-aged children. She lives in Nyamira, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale grain farming.

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainties and disrupting food supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is on the front line of combating this pandemic through supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs during this difficult period.

Philes is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve production on her farm and make more income to support her family.

Support her at this time when the world is focused on combating the COVID-19 pandemic.
