A loan of $600 helps to buy farming inputs so she can improve her farm's production and earn more income to support her family during this tough economic recession.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 39 years old and lives in Kitale, an area with hilly scenery that is good for camping and hiking. She has been a mixed dairy and crop farmer for the past many years. Through farming, she has sent her children to school.

The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, thereby guaranteeing their survival. Elizabeth is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs so that she can improve her farm's production and earn more income to support her family during this tough economic recession.

Be inspired to support Elizabeth today and help light her flames of hope for a better future.


This loan is special because:

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