A loan of $650 helped to purchase farm implements.


Brigid's story

Brigid lives in a small, isolated community in the Kitale area of Kenya. Despite the difficult living situation and general lack of access to the outside world, she is a hardworking farmer.

Five years ago she began farming. Her parents have been supportive and even allowed her to use their land as capital. Today, she has achieved great milestones in terms of diversifying from vegetable farming by introducing farm animals such as dairy cows, hens, and ducks. However, a large portion of the land is still dedicated to vegetable farming.

Brigid is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders to purchase farm implements. After years of use, her farm tools have become old and worn out. This makes her work on the farm very slow and tedious.

With your loan, she will be able to acquire new farm implements that are in good condition, better designed, durable, and more efficient. The overall effect will be a better quality of farm work and better yields at the end of the season.

This loan will highly impact the financial condition of Brigid’s family, and Brigid will be able to improve her farm even more.


This loan is special because:

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