Faith's story

This is Faith, 32. She is a resourceful woman who is full of smiles. She hails from a remote village in the Kapsowar area of Kenya. She is a person who has experienced poverty firsthand, but she is striving to get out of that condition through crop farming. She is very hardworking, and a go-getter. Faith's primary source of income is crop farming. She also earns some income through a personal business. Faith is content with the farming way of life.

Faith is a very enterprising woman, and, although she never had a formal college education or formal employment, she has always worked hard on her farm and she has always provided her children with a good education, and her family with a decent meal.

The Kapsowar area has favorable conditions for crop farming, and that is why Faith is requesting a loan to buy seeds and improve her crop farming. This way, she will be able to meet the high demand for crops produced in her village, and increase her income to secure the future of her children.

Thanks to good roads, a good climate, and a good transportation network, Faith is sure that she will reap maximum profits, and she will be able to increase her business. Being a smallholder woman farmer and accessing funds in her remote village is very challenging, but Faith feels relieved knowing that there are institutions such as Kiva that help women who, like her, have vision.
