A loan of $200 helps to buy farming inputs to improve her farm production.


Mary's story

Mary is 33 years old and resides in Bungoma, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale grain farming. She has 5 school-going children under her care and has farmed for the past many years. Through farming, she has made tremendous progress.

Mary is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs to improve her farm production, thus supporting her family during this health crisis. The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is a lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival.

Supporting Mary with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.


This loan is special because:

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