A loan helped to buy cereals to resell to generate profits and secure a comfortable living for her children.

Nancy's story

Nancy is a caring mother from Sotik, and a parent to five children who she loves unconditionally. Her power of smiling is undeniable and creates an impact of positive living to those she interacts with.

Through the profits she gets from mixed dairy and crop farming, she has been able to send all her children to school. She has ten years of experience in agribusiness. Because of the immense knowledge Nancy has of farming, farmers from her village seek technical advice from her on the best farming techniques.

Although she makes a profit from farming, Nancy is not comfortable and has always wanted to increase her income by selling cereals. That is why she is seeking this loan to buy cereals. Kenya's Sotik area, one of the country's most populated regions, has a high demand for cereals. This means that Nancy could increase her profits and satisfy the local demand.

Accessing funds has been a challenge for Nancy. She was relieved to find that Juhudi Kilimo partners with Kiva lenders to help hardworking women farmers like her turn their dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Nancy is very thankful to Kiva lenders for the first loans that she got. She repaid all her loans successfully.

This loan is special because:

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