A loan of $275 helps to buy farm inputs, such as certified seed and high-nutrient fertilizer, to improve her output, increase her sales revenue and raise her family's living standards.


Betty's story

Betty is a 27-year-old smallholder farmer living in Bomet, an area with beautiful hills that are good for camping and hiking. Her family's main source of income is milk from their dairy farm, however they are also involved in other agricultural activities and grow different crops.

Access to modern-quality farm inputs is the pillar of agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government falls far below farmers' needs. Since Juhudi Kilimo, a Kiva Field Partner, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement on input availability.

Betty is seeking a loan to buy farm supplies, such as quality certified seed and nutrient-rich fertilizer, to improve her farm's production. This boost will help her meet the increasing demand for food in the market and generate more income so that she may repay her loan and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the condition of her house.

Juhudi Kilimo partners with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers like Betty can now buy important supplies to use on their farms. Please help this farmer accomplish her dreams by funding her loan!


This loan is special because:

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