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

A loan helped to purchase farm inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizer and certified seeds to boost her yields and improve her sales.

Truphena's story

Truphena, a 33-year-old mother of four children, has wide experience in crop and dairy farming. She has mastered farming activities such as growing, caring, and harvesting, and earns income from her crops as well. She is a mom who has passion for her work and therefore inspires her village mates and her customers.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural success. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers.

Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement on input availability than before.

Truphena is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, herbicide, and pesticide. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs.

This intervention will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market, and in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life. This mom would certainly appreciate your support.
