Ruth's story

Ruth is 38 years old and married, with four children. She lives in the Murang’a area of Kenya, famous for pineapple production. Ruth holds a job that pays her a monthly salary. She also sells eggs from her farm, among other personal businesses. She has been involved in farming for 20 years now. Ruth has requested a loan from Kiva lenders, via Juhudi Kilimo, to construct a piggery and to purchase poultry and a water tank. These assets will improve the state of her farm, generate more income, and create convenience. Ruth plans on making full payments on the loan. The additional income will go to satisfying her family needs, paying for her children’s school fees, and re-investing in her business.
