Mercy's story

Special Kiva community, meet Mercy!

Mercy, a 27-year-old mom of two school-going children, is a rural smallholder farmer from the Maua area of Kenya. Her family's main income source is milk from their dairy farm. However, they are also involved in other agricultural activities such as growing different crops.

The biggest problem that farmers from Maua face is limited access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Maua, like Mercy, can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Mercy is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers.

Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life.

She hopes to improve the conditions of her house. Help this mother to accomplish all of her dreams with just a loan!

This loan is special because:

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