Grace's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy a motorcycle.
Grace is a progressive smallholder farmer based in the Kitale area of Kenya. She practises both livestock and crop farming for a living. If you were to visit her farm today, you would find dairy cows, poultry, and a grazing field. Grace is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders, through Juhudi Kilimo, to buy a reasonably-priced motorcycle that will be used for transporting milk to and from the market. With this asset, Grace will be able to have access to formal markets in new geographical and economical regions where prices are much better than the local markets. Increase in income from this intervention will help Grace to scale up her business and improve the quality of life being led by her family.
