A loan of $375 helps to help her to buy more tea leaves for selling.


Brenda's story

Brenda is a wife and a mother to one child. Her business is able to support herself and her family too. She grows as well as buys and sells green tea to the local residents. Her main challenge at the moment is the lack of capital to purchase tea for reselling.

This loan will be used to purchase the stock to boost her business. She is a firm believer in building the community and that’s why she contracts people from her community; from where she buys the tea and in transporting it.

Previously, she has taken a loan with Kiva’s Kenyan field partner, ECLOF Kenya with which she started her business. She paid it back in full and on time. With the profits, she will improve her family’s standard of living and give her child a good education, simultaneously paying back the loan.


This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase supplies and agricultural equipment.
