A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seeds and quality fertilizers, to produce good yields and generate more profit to support her children.


Grace's story

Meet Grace, who is a humble widow who loves all her children. She was born into a family where farming skills were passed on from one generation to the next.

She has promised to give her children the best life a loving mother could possibly give. Since she did not have any other alternatives from which to earn income, she ventured into farming. Her main income source is milk from her dairy farm. However, she is also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing bananas, vegetables, fruits, and grains.

Access to modern, quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizers and seeds allocated by the government are way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured in the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement on inputs availability than before.

Grace is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers.

Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan and improve the quality of life for her family. She also hopes to improve the conditions of her house.

Help this mother to accomplish all her dreams with this loan!


This loan is special because:

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