Penina's story

Penina (37) is a woman who works with absolute certainty towards success. She lives in Bungoma, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands, which favor large-scale grain farming.

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

Penina is seeking this loan to hire labour and buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her 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.
