Rosemary's story

Meet Rosemary (a first-time Kiva borrower). She is a 40-year-old mother of three children living in Meru, a place where every Kiva lender would like to be to enjoy the beautiful climate and observe the Great Mount Kenya and other staggering hills in the region. She practices mixed farming and sells milk from her animals, eggs from her poultry, and various food crops at the local market.
The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival. Rosemary is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her farm production, which has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Be inspired, and support Rosemary with a loan today.


This loan is special because:

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