Selly's story

Selly is a 48-year-old mother of two children living in Kapsowar, a town that was significantly struck by the violent 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis. Selly believes that, with discipline, she is capable of attracting massive success. She feeds her family through mixed dairy and crop farming.

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed a significant threat to the economy of Kenya, causing a lot of uncertainty and disrupting food supply chains. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is on the front line combating this pandemic by supporting smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs in this difficult period.

Selly is seeking this loan to buy farm inputs, which she will use to improve her production and make more income to support her family during this global health crisis. A loan to Selly will be a proper way of uplifting her during this period.


This loan is special because:

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