A loan of $750 helps to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizer and hybrid seeds, to boost the quality of her produce and earn more profit.


Jane's story

Jane (46) is a mother blessed with 2 school-going children. She is a determined woman who is very motivated to give her family a solid reputation. Thanks to her hard work and determination, her children have hopes and expectations of a brighter future. Jane lives in Litein, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya.

Unfortunately, the quality of Jane's produce has been reduced because she has been using low-quality farming inputs. This has brought about low demand for her crops and has negatively impacted her sales. Access to modern-quality farm inputs, such as fertilizer and hybrid seeds, is a pillar of the agricultural revolution. However, in Kenya, a developing country, fertilizer and seed allocation by the government is far below the needs of farmers.

Jane is humbly seeking a helping hand to purchase farming inputs, such as fertilizer and hybrid seeds, to boost the quality of her produce. Since Juhudi Kilimo, which is in partnership with Kiva, ventured to improve the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, farmers can attest that there has been a significant improvement in the availability of inputs.

Now Jane is assured of a bumper harvest, which will open new markets for her crops and subsequently increase her profit. This will elevate her standard of living, as well as that of her beautiful children.


This loan is special because:

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