Josephine's story

Josephine is a 38-year-old mother of two children who are in school. She earns her living as a smallholder farmer. Josephine has been farming for the past few years. During that time, she has gained much experience and is considered to be among the best farmers in her village.

Her primary sources of income are derived from cultivating different crops. Josephine is very passionate about farming and loves managing her farm. She is an honest, hardworking, and loyal person who is dedicated to her farm since it allows her to provide for her family’s needs. Although she makes a profit from farming, Josephine is not able to achieve a comfortable standard of living. She has always wanted to increase her income by purchasing quality fertilizers to improve her crops. For this reason, she has requested this loan so that she can make these investments to improve her crop farming.

The Maua area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for crops. This means that Josephine can increase her profits by meeting the existing demand for crop products. She is grateful that Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like herself turn their dreams into reality by obtaining training and loan financing.

Josephine is a special and zealous individual who is grateful for the help and support of the Kiva lenders.
