A loan of $475 helps to purchase farming inputs, such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her crop yields.
The photo of Janepher was taken at her home. She is 37 years old and has five children in school. Janepher and her family live in Kitale, a land of seemingly never-ending beauty. She generates income from mixed dairy and crop farming. Janepher has been doing this work for many years. Through farming, she has been able to meet the demands of her family.
Janepher is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her production so that she can make more profit to support her family, especially during this tough economic time. The COVID-19 pandemic posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing lots of uncertainty and disrupting food supply chains.
Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is at the forefront in combating this pandemic by supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs during this difficult period. Please join Juhudi’s efforts by lending to Janepher.
