Christina's story

Women are considerably marginalized in Kenya, but Christina is not lying low and wants to fight for a brighter future. She is very hard-working and a high-flier. She hails from a remote village in the Bomet area of Kenya.

This area has tough living conditions and to survive you must have tough skin. However, Christina has defied all the odds and has chosen to work hard so that she can meet the requirements of her loving family. She is their only breadwinner. Christina works on her farm growing different crops for commercial purposes

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest to the significant improvement in the availability of inputs from what it was before.

Christina is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs. This loan will enable her to improve her farming production through the use of quality farm inputs.

This intervention will help her to fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and elevate the quality of life for her family.
