A loan helped to buy cereals, which she plans to resell and make more income for her family.


Magaret's story

Magaret is a 46-year-old mother of two school-going children, who always wakes up very early each morning because she is determined to succeed. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past thirty years. Through farming, she has made enormous progress for her family.

Magaret is seeking this loan to buy cereals, which she plans to resell and make more income for her family.

Unlike local money lenders who charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims to improve the lives of smallholder farmers through providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. Magaret is hopeful that Kiva lenders will respond positively to her loan request.


This loan is special because:

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