Roda's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Roda, a 58-year-old single mom, is a borrower who has a clean credit history. She comes from a deep remote village in the Kisumu area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start.

Roda has a farm where she grows crops. She also earns some income from a personal business.

The Kisumu area is a favorable one for farming so she is seeking a 20,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds. This will enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her farming business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her village, is very challenging. Roda feels relieved to know that there are institutions like Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions.

Kindly lend to this hardworking mom with a perfect credit rating score!
