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

A loan helped a mom to buy farm inputs, such as seeds, to improve her crop farming and improve her living conditions.

Joyce's story

Special people of Kiva! Joyce (36), is a mom who is a smallholder farmer. She is a go-getter and a loyal person who is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of.

Joyce has been farming for the past few years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered to be among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk and different crops. Joyce is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Joyce is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs, such as seeds, to improve her crop farming.

Kenya's Eldoret area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Joyce could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for different crops that are there.

Joyce feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hard-working and honest women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Joyce believes that this loan will be of help and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for crops. Kindly lend to her!
