A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds.

Patricia's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Patricia is a smallholder farmer. She is an honest, hardworking, loyal person who is completely dedicated to her farming job because she has a family to take care of.

She has been farming for the past few years. Over the years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk and different crops. Patricia is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Patricia is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds so that she can plant them and sell the crops after harvesting. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and improve her farming.

Kenya's Machakos area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for food. This means that Patricia could increase her profits and satisfy the demand for crop products that is there. Patricia feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with the wonderful Kiva lenders to help hardworking and honest women farmers like her to turn their farming dreams into a reality through training and loan financing.

Patricia believes that this loan will be of help, and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for crops and support her ageing parents.

Kindly lend to her and you will not be disappointed when it comes to paying back the loan.

This loan is special because:

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