A loan of $300 helps to buy cereals which she plans to resell and make more income to support her family during this global economic recession.


Wiliter's story

Wiliter is a 33-year old mother of three children living in Siongiroi, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past seven years. Through farming, Wiliter has given her family a solid reputation.

Wiliter is seeking this loan to buy cereals, which she plans to resell and make more income to support her family during this global economic recession.

Unlike most microfinance organisations in Kenya that have imposed very complicated procedures in fund acquisition, thereby discouraging smallholder farmers, Juhudi Kilimo is working closely with Kiva to make loan acquisition for a smallholder farmer easy and convenient. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty.

Wiliter is hopeful that Kiva lenders will support her.


This loan is special because:

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