Damaris's story

Damaris (32), wakes up every morning with a mission to turn her dreams into reality. She is a mother of two school-going children. Damaris lives in Nyamira, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and banana crop farming. She has been farming for the past many years.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Damaris is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her banana crop production, making more profit to support her family during this hard economic period. She is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
