Jane's story

Jane is a woman who always wears a golden smile. She is a 50-year-old mother of three children. Jane lives with her family in Kitale, a town surrounded by prime agricultural land that favors large-scale grain farming as well as dairy and horticultural farming. Jane has been active on her farm for the past 10 years.

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing lots of uncertainty and disrupting food supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is on the front line of combating this pandemic by supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs during this difficult period. Jane is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs which she will use to improve her production and earn more income to support her family. Please support her at this time when the world is focused on combating the COVID-19 pandemic.


This loan is special because:

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