A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers, so a hardworking mother of four children can support her family.

Renny's story

Meet Renny, a 31-year-old mother with two school going children. Renny is unwilling to let her four children suffer, and she sustains them using the proceeds of her farming business (dairy and crop). Through farming, Renny has sent all her children to school. Her biggest challenge in crop production is the high cost of farming inputs.

Access to modern, quality farm inputs is the pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is way below the needs of farmers. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in input availability.

Renny is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers. Your loan will enable her to improve her production through the use of quality farm inputs. Through this intervention, she will be able to improve the quality of her farm products and attract more buyers, leading to more profits.

This loan is special because:

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