A loan helped to hire more labor to help on her farm so that she can improve her produce and make more income to support her three children.


Sarah's story

Sarah is a mother of three children who used her natural abilities to pull herself out of poverty. Her perseverance and determination have enabled her to send two of her three children to school regardless of the many adversities she has faced. Sarah has never lost her enthusiasm and she moves from one challenge to another and emerges a victor. In Maua, Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high cost of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have skyrocketed.

After learning about Juhudi Kilimo, Sarah applied for this loan to hire more labor to help on her farm so that she can improve her produce and make more income to support her children. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interests on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims to improve the lives of smallholder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Please support this woman so that she can achieve her dreams.


This loan is special because:

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