A loan helped to buy seeds and fertilizer to improve her crop output and make more income so that she can support her family in 2021.


Rosaline's story

Rosaline is a repeat Kiva borrower who is a 37-year-old mother of two children. She lives in Embu, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She works with plenty of determination so that she can achieve her dreams. On her farm, she grows crops and raises livestock.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic, which requires upgraded inputs for effective production. Although Rosaline has been earning profits from farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing much of a harvest lately due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds, as well as the presence of pests and diseases. For this reason, she is seeking a loan to buy seeds and fertilizer to improve her crop output.

This will help this mother earn profits to support her family. Rosaline is very thankful for this gesture of goodwill in her life.


This loan is special because:

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