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

A loan helped to buy cereals (such as corn and beans) from local farmers to sell at a profit and be able to meet the expenses of her family.

Pamela's story

Hello, Kiva lenders! Pamela is a 32-year-old mom of 3 children. Because of the immense knowledge she has about farming, farmers from her village seek technical advice from her on the best crop farming techniques.

Pamela is the major breadwinner for her family, which pushes her to work hard. Although she makes a profit from farming, she is not comfortable. She has always wanted to increase her income by selling cereals, so she is seeking this loan to buy cereals, such as corn and beans. Kenya's Kitale area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Pamela could satisfy the demand and increase her profits.

Accessing funds has been a challenge for Pamela, but she now feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva lenders. Together, they are helping hardworking women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. This loan will ease her living, and she'll be able to develop her cereal business. Pamela is very grateful to her lenders in advance.
