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

A loan helped to buy farming inputs such as high-nutrient fertilizers in order to improve her output, increase tea-sale revenues, and improve her life.

Joyce's story

Joyce, age 43, is the mother of four children. She lives in Nyamira, the home of some of the world's most beautiful sculptures. She is a skilled farmer with many years of experience. Her family's main source of income is from milk sales from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities and grow crops.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya. Farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in the availability of inputs as a result.

Joyce is seeking a loan to buy supplies such as nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve her farm. Your loan will enable her to use quality fertilizers to improve her farm's production.

Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers like Joyce from Nyamira can now buy important supplies to use on their farms. Please help this farmer accomplish all her dreams by funding her loan!
