A loan helped to buy farm inputs she plans to use to improve production and earn more income to support her family, especially during this tough global economic recession.


Gladys's story

Gladys, a repeat Kiva borrower, is a 25-year old mother of two living in Litein, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She's been a mixed dairy and crop farmer five years, enabling her to meet her family’s needs. Through farming, Gladys has changed her life completely.

She's seeking this loan to buy farm inputs which she plans to use to improve her production and earn more income to support her family, especially during this tough global economic recession. One objective that Juhudi Kilimo aims to fulfill is increasing the ease of accessing farm inputs and income-generating assets for farmers.

Gladys is optimistic that Kiva lenders will support her during this time when the world is united in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.


This loan is special because:

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