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


A loan helped to buy quality farm inputs, such as seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which will enable her to improve her production.


Monica's story

Meet Monica (a 33-year-old mom of two school-going children pictured outside her simple mud constructed house). Monica is a rural smallholder farmer from the Kapcherop area of Kenya. She is living proof that hard work leads to success.

Ever since she started farming, she has become independent and more skilled. Monica practices mixed dairy and crop farming.

The biggest problem that farmers from Kapcherop face is a huge shortage in terms of access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Kitale, like Monica, can now buy productive assets and important inputs for use on their farms.

Monica is seeking a loan to buy quality farm inputs, such as seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which will enable her to improve her production. This intervention will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the conditions of her house.

Please help this mother to accomplish all her dreams by helping her with a loan!
