Emmah's story

Meet Emmah. She is a 28-year-old mother of three school-going children living in Nyamira, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and banana farming.

The Covid-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainties and disrupting food supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is on the front line in combating this pandemic through supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs in this difficult period.

Emmah is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she will use to improve her banana crop production and make more income to support her family. Support her at this time when the world is focused on combatting the Covid-19 pandemic.
