A loan helped to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her tea crop production.

Gladys's story

Gladys, 22, is pictured in her tea crop farm. She is a woman who never quits despite the ups and downs that she goes through in her day-to-day quest for a better future. She is a hardworking woman living in Nyamira, Kenya, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale grain farming and crop farming.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas.

Gladys is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she will use to buy fertilizers to improve her tea crop production, making more profit to support her family during this hard economic period. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
