Dorcas's story

Dorcas, 42, the mom of 4 school-going children, is very hardworking and a high-flier. She hails from a remote village in Nyahururu, an area endowed with natural beauty. Dorcas has lovely children who push her to work very hard on her farm where she rears dairy cows and grows crops.

Dorcas has not been using farm inputs like nutrient-rich fertilizer and quality seed. Access to modern-quality inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below farmers' needs. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in the inputs available to them.

Dorcas has requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders to purchase farm inputs, such as certified seed and nutrient-rich fertilizer, to boost the quality of her produce, increase her profits and elevate her standard of living.

This loan you give Dorcas will have a lasting impact in her heart, and she will forever be indebted to lenders!
