Jane's story

Jane, a 46-year-old mother of five children, is a repeat borrower who has a perfect credit rating. She is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in Nyahururu, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and crop farming. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a good quality education.

Jane has a farm where she grows different crops and raises livestock. She earns additional income from a personal business. Jane requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 110,000 KES. She will use this loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, which will enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her area, is very challenging. However, Jane feels relieved knowing that there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Her biggest dreams are to become independent and thus support her family by herself, to secure her children’s future and to buy a home.
