Sarah's story

Sarah has no higher education or work experience, only her wits and her desire to succeed in life. She is a very hardworking, progressive, and honest farmer from a very remote village in Kaplamai in the Kitale area of Kenya. This area is very fertile, with favorable weather patterns that support farming activities.

Sarah is happily married and the proud mother of three children, and together they live on a small piece of land that she really treasures. Her primary sources of income are eggs and milk.

Although this humble and industrious mother makes a profit, she faces the challenge of not being able to produce enough to meet the ready market that is available. Therefore, she is seeking funds from Kiva lenders to buy farm inputs like good fertilizer and good quality seeds.

Through this loan, she will double her production, and this will translate into increased income. She then intends to save more money in the future so that she can develop her farming. This loan will help Sarah to realize her dream of getting out of poverty, and she will be able to secure her family's future.
