Peninah's story

Hello! Meet Peninah, a hard-working, very honest and warm-hearted farmer who hails from the Nyamira area of Kenya, an area that has one of the best weather patterns on earth that favors farming. Peninah is the proud mother of three lovely children whom she really loves and adores and always protects. Peninah’s upbringing was very challenging, and because of this, she promised herself that she would work hard to get out of poverty. That is why she started farming eight years ago. Through farming, she has been able to earn a decent income. Peninah is the breadwinner of her family, and this really pushes her to work hard so that her three children will have a bright future and her parents will have a comfortable life. Peninah is seeking a loan to start horticulture farming so that she can use the excess space on her land. She dreams of buying more land and increasing her horticulture farming. Accessing funds is very difficult for a woman in Africa, but through institutions such as Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, Peninah is optimistic that her dream will be realized and her life will completely change. Through the income from horticulture farming, Peninah will assure her children of a bright future and will be able to pay tuition fees for her siblings who depend on her. Through your loan, the promise of supporting small-scale farmers will be achieved.
