A loan helped to buy quality seeds to help improve her crop production and, in the near future, start exporting her crops.


Everline's story

Everline has a lovely family. She will always do anything to prevent them from going to bed with hungry stomachs.

Everline is from the Kitale area of Kenya. She never got the opportunity to advance her education and get a white collar job, but these realities did not kill her dream of wanting to succeed in life.

Everline has been farming for the past five years. Through the years, she has gathered much experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips.

She practices mixed farming (dairy, animals, and crop farming). With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs.

Everline requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 40,000 KES, which she will use to buy seeds to improve her crop farming. She wants to take advantage of various conditions such as favorable weather patterns, a good road network in her village, good soil, and a ready market for crop products to reap more profits.

By the end of the first year, she hopes that she will not only be selling her crops in the local market but also in international markets through the export of various crops.

Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva and Kiva lenders to help hardworking women like Everline turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Everline is very thankful for her future lenders' help and understanding.


This loan is special because:

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