A loan helped a single mom to buy farm inputs, such as seeds and quality fertilizer, to improve her crop farming.


Judy's story

Judy is a 23-year-old single mother living in Nakuru, a town that was significantly struck by the 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis when violence occurred in Kenya. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past few years. Judy has always invested in keeping her family progressing.

The major impediment to the development of small-hold farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, thereby guaranteeing their survival.

Judy is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs that she will use to improve her production and make more income for her family.

Be inspired to support Judy with a loan today.


This loan is special because:

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