A loan helped to buy agro vets products such as organic fertilizers to enable her to grow more crops.


Jackline's story

Jackline (a 26-year-old mom of 2 pictured in her simple house) is a hardworking farmer from a remote village in the Kitui area of Kenya. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a good quality education.

She has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She never had a formal secondary school education and is content with the farming lifestyle. The Kitui area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 100,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy agro vets products such as organic fertilizers to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

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

Jackline is really thankful in advance for your attention and help.


This loan is special because:

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