A loan of $400 helps to buy farming inputs (fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides).

Alice's story

Alice (the woman pictured above in her small shop) is a humble farmer who wakes up daily to attend to her crops and dairy animals. She has always been committed to her work and believes that through farming she will be able to pull out of poverty. Alice was not enrolled in a higher learning institution but she trusts her efforts in farming.

Alice is a hardworking, progressive, and honest farmer from a very remote village in the Nandi hills area of Kenya. This area is very fertile, with favorable weather patterns that support farming activities.

Although this progressive and visionary mother has played her roles well, not everything has been easy for her. Therefore, she is seeking funds from Kiva lenders to buy farm inputs like good fertilizers, quality pesticides and herbicides.

Through this loan, Alice 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 surely have a lasting impact in her heart. Alice will realize her dream of getting out of poverty, and she will be able to secure her family's future.

This loan is special because:

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