A loan helped to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her production, making more profit to support her family during this hard economic period.


Gladys's story

Gladys (a 42-year-old mom of three school-going children) is a woman who never quits despite the ups and downs that she goes through in her day-to-day quest for a better future. She is a hard-working woman living in Eldama Ravine, Kenya, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands which favor large-scale farming.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya, especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas. Gladys is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs, which she will use to improve her production, making more profit to support her family during this hard economic period. Supporting her 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.
