Vane's story

Vane (pictured in her side hustle business) is a 34-year-old woman living in Nyeri, a town in the highlands of Kenya. It is a region with a temperate climate that favors crop farming. Vane has been a farmer for the past many years and has found it has made her life meaningful.

Vane is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs that she plans to use to improve production and increase her income to support her family. She believes and is thankful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request. Thanks to lenders’ determination and commitment to make the world a better place, Vane’s life will be completely changed.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is effective in reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, who are the central actors in rural areas.
