A loan helped to buy farm inputs to help improve her crop production and help a single mum, who prefers Kiva to local money lenders, to secure her children's future.

Eunice's story

When talking to Eunice, you can't help but notice that her family is her greatest motivator to work hard. Eunice is a smallholder farmer from Nyahururu, Kenya. She is single, with very adorable children. Like many farmers in the region, she keeps a dairy cow and grows different varieties of crops in her farm.

Eunice practices crop farming, but she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs. Through the loan, she will be able to purchase high quality seeds, good fertilizer, and pesticides that she will use to greatly improve her crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high quality seeds to ensure a bumper harvest and increased profits. Eunice is very forward-looking, and her goal for the season is to boost her crop production over the previous year. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interests on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of smallholder farmers through providing them with loans and encouraging them to save.

This loan is special because:

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