A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds to enable a zealous repeat Kiva borrower to grow more vegetables, reap maximum profits, and increase his business.


Macarius's story

Macarius is a farmer who works hard to sustain his family. He is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Nyamira area of Kenya. The area is a favorable one for farming. Thanks to his daily efforts, he has managed to give his family a good start.

Macarius has a farm where he grows crops and raises livestock.

Macarius requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo. He will use it to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds. This will enable him to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase his business.

Being a poor farmer and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Nyamira, is very challenging. But Macarius feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising dads like himself. He is always working to improve his family’s living conditions. His biggest dreams are to become independent and to independently support his family.

Be part of this beautiful dream!
