Joan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and quality organic manure/ fertilizer, to improve her crop farming.

Joan's story

The ever smiling nice woman who appears in the photo is Joan. She is 22 years old. She is a woman who is not deterred by the difficulties she encounters in her quest for success.

Like many farmers from Nandihills, Joan keeps dairy cows and 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.

Joan 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 improve her living standards.

She 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.
