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

A loan helped to buy cereals (corn and beans) to meet the demand in her village and, through increased profits, to support her children.

Rose's story

Rose (30) is a woman who always believes that life’s ups and downs should not be viewed as the end but as a learning opportunity. She is a mixed farmer and has worked for the last many years enabling her to support her family. She moves from pillar to post for the benefit of her family.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Rose is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by selling cereals. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy cereals (beans and corn). Her remote area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Rose could increase her profits and satisfy the local demand.

Accessing funds has been a challenge for Rose. She was relieved to find that Juhudi Kilimo partners with Kiva lenders to help hardworking women farmers like her turn their dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Rose believes that this loan will be of much help to her, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for cereals and support her children. Rose is very thankful for your support and empowerment this month.
