Felistus's story

Felistus is a very hardworking person. Thanks to her daily effort, she has managed to get her four children ahead, providing them with a good-quality education. She is 46 years old, and hails from a remote village in the Kitui area of Kenya.

Her primary sources of income are crops and animal farming. She is contented with the farming way of life but never had formal education or formal employment. The Kitui area is favorable for farming, and that is why she is seeking a loan to buy seeds and fertilizers to boost her farming so that she can reap maximum profits and increase her farming business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially the Kitui area, is very challenging, but she feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. Her goal is to improve her living conditions and secure the future of her children who are in school.

Her biggest dreams are to be able to support her family by herself, to become independent, and to buy a home.
