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

A loan helped a widowed mom to buy farming inputs to improve her farm production and support her family.

Zeddy's story

Hello, Kiva community! Meet Zeddy, who is a 52-year-old widowed mom of five and lives in Molo, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She has lovely children under her care who she loves.

Zeddy is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs and improve her farm production. The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is a lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Zeddy is hopeful that all Kiva lenders are adhering to COVID-19 pandemic safety measures.
