Agnes's story

The nice woman who appears in the photo is Agnes. She is married, 45 years old, and has five children. Agnes is an ever-smiling woman who is not deterred by the difficulties she encounters in her quest for success. Agnes has lovely children who help her in her day-to-day farming activities.

Like many farmers from Kitale, Agnes grows crop produce and maize, a staple crop that she has been planting for as long as she can remember. Over time, the fertility of her land has started to decline, and her maize and crop yields are decreasing with each season. Her farmland has also been affected by weeds.

Agnes is currently requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo, a Kiva field partner, to buy quality fertilizer and high-quality seeds to improve her crop farm. Through this loan, she expects to increase her crop production, improve the harvest and earn a higher income. Thus, this loan will help her to change her living standard.

Agnes is confident that if you lend to her, her next planting season will be good. She thanks you wholeheartedly for your previous help and hopes for your warm response.
