Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $975 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Sibiah's story

Sibiah is a resident and farmer in Kisii, Kenya. She has 30 years of experience in farming. Her farm is managed with the help of three farmhands currently. Her produce consists mainly of maize, beans and napier grass, which is sold at the local market. She runs a milling machines business for additional income. She laments of the effect of pests and diseases which often destroy farm produce before harvest.

Sibiah has requested a loan of 80,000 Kenyan shillings from Juhudi Kilimo to help her buy a dairy cow. This is her second loan request with Juhudi Kilimo and she hopes to earn better income and expand her farm by buying more land in five years’ time.
