A loan of $550 helps to buy quality farming inputs, such as certified and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she plans to use on her crop farm.


Caren's story

Caren is a 26-year-old mum of 2 school-going children with a total willingness to work. She hails from the Sotik area of Kenya, an area that has good rainfall patterns and is known for dairy and crop farming. Caren has 2 lovely school-going children she adores and cherishes, who always paint a smile on her face. She is a mixed farmer with many years of experience. When she learned about Juhudi and Kiva, she became interested.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries, especially due to the high costs of operations necessary to improve farming. Such costs include the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have always skyrocketed. To meet the high costs of inputs, farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions, which sometimes impose very complicated procedures in loan distribution.

Caren has acquired this loan so that she can use it to buy quality farming inputs, such as certified and nutrient-rich fertilizers, which she plans to use on her crop farm. With these inputs, Caren will be assured of a good harvest, which will consequently reflect in her pocket.

This loan will be a turning point for a mother this 2021.


This loan is special because:

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