A loan of $200 helps to buy farm inputs and hire laborers, so that she can grow more crops on her farm.


Charity's story

Dear Kiva lender! Meet Charity, a smallholder farmer from a remote village in the Kerugoya area of Kenya. She started farming five years ago, on a small plot she acquired. On the farm, she has dairy cows and a small garden.

Charity is seeking a 20,000 KES loan, which she will use to pay for farm inputs and to hire labor, to grow more crops on the farm. It takes a lot of courage for a smallholder farmer to risk limited resources to expand a farm business. With your help, Charity will be able to pay the high cost of farm inputs necessary for expansion.

A significant portion of the profits will be plowed back into the business, to fuel growth as she sets a good foundation for her children. She really hopes for your help and contribution. Charity is thankful, in advance.


This loan is special because:

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