Truphena's story

Wonderful Kiva lenders,

Truphena, 36, is a mother of 5 who works very hard toward success. Among women of her age, she has been identified as a very hardworking farmer who engages in mixed farming. Truphena is a mom who loves attending to her daily duties and making a living for her family.

The quality of Truphena’s crops has dwindled due to the use of poor farm inputs. This has brought about low demand for her crops and has negatively impacted her sales.

Access to modern, quality farm inputs (fertilizer and hybrid seeds) is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Truphena is seeking a helping hand to purchase farming inputs such as fertilizer and hybrid seeds to boost the quality of her produce.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, who 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 input availability. Truphena is assured of a bumper harvest, which will open new markets for her crops and increase her profits. Increased profits will elevate her standard of living, as well as that of her beautiful children.
