Anne's story

Hello, Kiva community!

Anne, a 37-year-old mom of 4, is a borrower who has a clean credit history and is from a remote village deep in the Kitale area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her family a good start.

Anne has a farm where she grows crops. She also earns some income from a personal business. She has never had a formal college school education and is content with the farming lifestyle.

The Kitale area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 65,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds. This 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. Anne feels relieved knowing that there are institutions like Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions.

Kindly lend to this hardworking mom with a perfect credit rating score!


This loan is special because:

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