A loan helped a widowed mother to buy high quality certified seeds and fertilizer, to improve production and generate more income.

Juliana's story

Wonderful Kiva lenders! The remote town of Siongiroi is home to Juliana. She is widowed lady, 58 years old.

Juliana’s primary sources of income are crops and animal farming. She also earns some income from a personal business. She never had formal education, and is content with the farming lifestyle.

The Siongiroi area is a favorable area for farming, so she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and seeds. This will enable her to grow more crops to reap maximum profits and increase her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially the Siongiroi area, is very challenging, but Juliana feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her. This loan will ensure a future rich harvest and income.

Juliana is so grateful to her lenders for understanding and empowering a woman.

This loan is special because:

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