Elizabeth's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Meet Elizabeth, an inspiring single lady living in Nyahururu, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She is a mixed farmer who works hard to give herself a solid background to her future.

In her home village, it is a common belief that being born into a wealthy home and/or being more educated are the only guaranteed ways of becoming successful. Elizabeth started farming a few years ago with the aim of providing for her family's basic needs. She has done tremendous work in the agribusiness field with her great passion and enthusiasm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Elizabeth is not comfortable. She has always wanted to increase her income by buying modern farm inputs such as organic fertilizers and certified seeds and improve the quality of her produce.

Elizabeth feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hard-working and honest female farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Elizabeth believes that this loan will be of help and that she will be able to improve her crop productivity through irrigating her farm.

Kindly lend to her and keep her smiling.
