A loan helped a repeat Kiva borrower to buy fertilizer and high-quality seeds to improve her farm yields, earn a higher income, and eventually change her living conditions.

Jane's story

Jane is a repeat Kiva borrower and has successfully paid back her previous loan. She is fully dedicated to her farming and family. She farms a small plot of land in the green, lush hills near Kenyenya, in the Nyanza region of Kenya. Like many farmers in the region, Jane keeps dairy cows and grows maize, a staple crop that she has been planting for as long as she can remember. Over time, the fertility of her land has started to dwindle, and her maize yields are decreasing with each season. Her farmland has also been affected by weeds.

Jane is currently requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to buy fertilizer and high-quality seeds to improve her farm. Through this loan, she expects to increase her crop production, improve the harvest, and earn a higher income. Thus, this loan will change her living standards.

Jane is confident that if you lend to her, her next planting season will be good. She thanks you wholeheartedly for your previous help and hopes for your warm response.

This loan is special because:

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