A loan helped to purchase farm implements.

Grace's story

Hello, lenders! Meet again Grace, who is not a first-time Kiva borrower and has previously paid back her loan on time.

Grace is a mother of six, who has been practicing agriculture for the last six years. Because of the immense knowledge she has about farming, she commands a lot of respect among other farmers and is viewed as a mentor in her village.

Grace lives together with her children in the Nyahururu area of Kenya, which is known for maize farming. Her primary income sources are eggs and milk, and some personal business she engages in to supplement her meager income. Generating an income through selling her harvest is the part of farming she enjoys most, while availability of labour is a major challenge for her.

Before joining Juhudi, Grace could not access loans from banks, since she is a woman and a smallholder farmer. She joined Juhudi Kilimo and learnt about loan management and agribusiness. She also got to learn about Kiva.

Grace is seeking a loan to purchase farm implements. With your loan, she will make her farm activities much easier. This will boost her income and enable her to pay school fees for her children. Grace waits for your kindness.

This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens and farming equipment.
