Mary's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy farming inputs, such as certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizer, to improve her output and make more sales revenue.


Mary's story

Wonderful Kiva community, this is Mary (in the photo), the true definition of a hard worker. She has three children under her care.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is a 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.

Mary has applied for a 20,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farming inputs, such as certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizer. Greater profits from an increased yield will change her life and that of her entire household.

Mary has a great desire to succeed and hopes that Kiva lenders will listen to her request and help her better her life. She thanks her lenders for their generous support.
