A loan helped to buy certified seeds and high-nutrient fertilizers to improve her crop production.


Lucy's story

Her cute smile will warm anyone’s heart. Lucy is a repeat Kiva borrower and a mother who lives in Nyahururu. For the past few years, this enterprising woman has been actively involved in mixed farming. She loves farming, for it is her only way of securing a living for her lovely family.

Lucy’s dreams are that, through farming, she will be able to pull away from poverty and also see to it that all her children successfully complete their studies. She is visionary and keen to ensure that she keeps on progressing.

Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, has extended its services to the remote areas in the Nyahururu region of Kenya, and its staff is keen to ensure that hardworking small landholder women like Lucy benefit from loans that should enable them to purchase assets and farming inputs.

Lucy is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizer. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs.

Through this intervention, Lucy will be able to improve the quality of her farm products and attract more buyers, leading to more profits. She plans to use the profits to repay the loan and clear her debt for her children's outstanding school fees.

Kindly lend to a repeat Kiva borrower with a good credit history!


This loan is special because:

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