but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farming inputs to improve farm production and increase profits to support her family.

Jane's story

Jane is 34 years old and lives in Kapcherop, a town struck by the 2007-2008 Kenyan crisis, when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a mixed farmer who has farmed for the past many years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful. Jane is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs and improve her farm production.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholders through financing in order to guarantee their survival. Jane is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to the safety measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
