A loan of $650 helps to buy cereals, which she plans to resell and make more income for her family.


Sharon's story

Sharon is a 21-year-old mother who always wakes up very early each morning because she is determined to succeed. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past four years. Through farming, she has made enormous progress for her family.

Sharon is seeking this loan to buy cereals, which she plans to resell and make more income for her family.

Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest 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.

Sharon is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request. A loan to her will be a proper way of uplifting her this season.


This loan is special because:

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