Rose's story

Rose, age 32, is a resourceful mother of four children. She lives in a remote village in the Siongiroi area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start by providing them with a good-quality education. Rose has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business.

The Siongiroi area is favorable for farming, so she is seeking a Kiva loan of 50,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business. Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her village, is very challenging, but Rose feels relieved to know there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her.

She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and to support her family by herself. Rose appreciates the understanding of the lenders and hopes to have their helping hand. Please make a loan to her today.
