A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, for growing more crops thus making more income for her family.


Jackline's story

Jackline is a 35-year-old mother living in Bungoma, an area with fertile agricultural lands. She is a very hardworking person. Thanks to her daily efforts, she has managed to give her lovely children a good start by providing them with a quality education.

Her primary sources of income are crops and mixed farming. She also earns some income from a personal business.

The Bungoma area is a favorable area for farming, so she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, for growing more crops. This will help her reap maximum profits and increase her crop business. Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially in the Bungoma area, is very challenging. However, Jackline is relieved to know there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her.

Her goal is to improve her living conditions and secure the future of her children. Her biggest dreams are to be able to support her family by herself, to become independent, and to buy a home. Jackline is counting on the assistance of the lenders and hopes to gain their attention.


This loan is special because:

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