A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seed, to enable her to grow more crops and use the profits to improve her living standard.


Jonifa's story

Hello Kiva community!

Jonifa (58 years old mom of 3) is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Molo area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts she has managed to give her family a good start by providing them with the basic human needs.


Jonifa has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. The Molo area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 20,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seed. These will enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her farming business.


Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her village, is very challenging. Jonifa feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Her biggest dreams are to become independent and to support her family by herself.
