Chalensensia's story

Hello, Kiva community, meet Chalensensia, a hardworking, determined woman and a great achiever. She is a rural smallholder farmer from the Kenyenya area of Kenya. Her family's main revenue source is milk from their dairy farm. However, she also participates in some side business to complement her meager income.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge discrepancy in their access to agricultural inputs, resulting in the fact that farmers' output and earnings are below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers like Chalensensia can take out loans and purchase farm inputs.

Chalensensia is humbly seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and high-quality seeds. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. Her competitive advantage in the market will be evident after she receives this loan.
Through this intervention, she will be able to afford food for her loving family. She thanks Kiva lenders for their kindness.


This loan is special because:

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