Emily's story

Emily is an ambitious 39-year-old lady from the Eldoret area, which is a luxuriant maize-producing region in the Rift Valley province of Kenya. With four children to raise, animals to look after, and food to cook, Emily, who is an ever-smiling woman of character and goodwill, has little time to make money to provide financial support for her family. Her primary sources of income are milk and some personal businesses that she engages in.

Emily is seeking a loan of 40,000 KES from Kiva lenders to buy seeds and expand her crop business. Crop farming offers employment opportunities to thousands of farmers in the Eldoret area. It’s for this reason that Juhudi Kilimo has teamed up with Kiva to give Emily access to a loan that will aid her in growing her horticulture farm into a highly profitable business.

With your loan, Emily’s family will benefit from the growth of the business. This will not only increase their income, but will also improve their living standards. If there is someone to consider lending to this 2021, then that person is Emily!
