Doris's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped in transporting her perishable crops products to the market on time and fetch a higher price.
Meet Doris. She is a 37-year-old mother of three school children living in Meru, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be and enjoy the beautiful climate, observing the Great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region. She practices mixed farming and various food crops at the local market. 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. Doris is seeking this loan to use in transporting her perishable products to the market.Through the loan her products will fetch a high price since they will be fresh. Be inspired and support Doris with a loan today.
