A loan of $750 helps to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and fertilizers, to help a repeat borrower, who repays her loan on time, improve her harvest and her living conditions.


Eunice's story

This is Eunice, a repeat borrower, and a rural smallholder farmer from the Nandi Hills area of Kenya. She is married and blessed with two school-going children. Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities such as crops.

The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning those farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be. Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from her village, like Eunice, can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Eunice is seeking a loan to buy additional farm inputs such as seeds. This loan will enable Eunice to improve her production through the use of quality seeds. This intervention will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market, and in the process, generate more income to repay the loan and improve her family's quality of life.

Eunice also hopes to improve the condition of her house. Help this mother accomplish all her dreams with just a loan!


This loan is special because:

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