Margaret's story

Margaret is a 59-year-old smallholder farmer living in Thika, a land of seemingly never-ending beauty. She is a hard-working woman, who has farmed for the past many years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

Margaret is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs which she plans to use to improve her production, thus making more income for her family. Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interests on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims to improve the lives of smallholder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Through this intervention, movement of funds in the rural communities has increased, thereby alleviating rural poverty. Be inspired to support Margaret with a loan today.
