A loan helped to buy farm inputs to improve her productivity, which will lead to increased profits to support her children.


Rose's story

Rose is a 40-year-old single mom and has two school-going children. Her family means the whole world to her. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer with many years of farming experience. Through farming, she has given her family a solid reputation.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, who are central actors in the rural areas. Rose is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs to improve her production and make more income for her family this year.

Rose hopes that Kiva lenders will be inspired to support her with a loan to make her resolution for 2021 a reality.


This loan is special because:

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