A loan of $650 helps to buy fertilizers to improve her corn crop output and generate more income from her corn sales for her family.


Janet's story

Hello, lenders. Meet Janet (a 32-year-old mom), a farmer from the remote village of Kitale, situated in the Rift valley province of Kenya.

In the Kitale area of Kenya, most people depend on agriculture to earn a living. Their biggest challenge is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, meaning that farmers' yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers in her village can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Janet has requested a loan that she will use to buy farm inputs such as nutrient-rich fertilizer to improve her corn farm. This loan will enable her to improve her corn crop production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help her to fill the increasing demand for corn food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay the loan debt and elevate the quality of life of her family.


This loan is special because:

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