A loan of $575 helped to buy a water pump, water pipes and other accessories for irrigation.


Judith's story

Judith is a Kiva borrower. She describes herself as a go-getter. She operates a farm where she grows crops. She also has a grinding mill where she grinds maize to sell. Her biggest business challenge is a lack of funds to buy pumps for irrigation. This is Judith's second loan with SMEP Deposit Taking Microfinance. Her previous loan, for 100,000 Kenyan shillings, was repaid successfully. She will use this loan, for 50,000 KES, to buy a water pump, water pipes and other accessories for irrigating her farm. In the future, she hopes that she will maximize the productivity of the farm through irrigation.
