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

A loan helped to purchase modern farm inputs, such as certified seeds and organic fertilizers, to improve the quality of her output.

Perpetua's story

Perpetua is a beautiful, determined young lady, aged 24, who is ready to risk her life with farming for the benefit of herself and her family. She is a first-time Kiva borrower who is full of hopes and expectations for success. She has farmed for the past six years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

Perpetua is seeking a loan to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizers and hybrid seeds, to boost the quality of her produce, earn more profits, and elevate her living standards.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, who are the central actors in the rural areas. Perpetua is hopeful that Kiva lenders are going to support her with a loan today.
