Esther's story

Ever imagined of living in planet Mars? Well, Nandi Hills Kenya would quench your thirst because of its stunning beauty. It is the home to Kipchoge, the INEOS marathon record holder, as well as Esther (a repeat Kiva borrower). Apart from these inspiring wonders, it has a good climate and predictable weather patterns that allow sustainable agricultural activities. Esther is 50 years old and lives here with her two children.

She has farmed for the past ten years. Through this loan, Esther plans to buy farming inputs which she will use to optimize her production and make more income for her family in 2021. Support her at this time when the COVID-19 pandemic has affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihoods.


This loan is special because:

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