Mary's story

Mary is a 48-year-old single mother, who does not let the struggles that she goes through in her quest, get in her path of success. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past 10 years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

Mary is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs, which she will use to improve her production and make more income for her family this first quarter of 2021. Unlike many local lenders, Kiva lenders have been partnered with Juhudi Kilimo to provide women in Kenya with loans during this time, when the world is focused on combatting Covid-19.


This loan is special because:

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