A loan of $350 helped to purchase poultry.


Jane's story

Hello, world! Meet Jane, a smallholder lady farmer who lives in Litein, Kenya. She is a mother of four who has been practicing agriculture for 10 years now. She makes money selling milk, eggs, and tea produced from her farm.

She likes milking the cow with her children in the morning and in the afternoon every day. Her passion extends to the point of naming her cow Lelkina.

Jane is seeking a loan to purchase poultry. Poultry farming is swiftly gaining traction in Kenya as the demand of poultry products is skyrocketing. Jane used to keep poultry for subsistence until she attended Juhudi Kilimo agribusiness training.

Through Juhudi Kilimo, Jane opted to take a Kiva loan because of the favorable repayment period and interest rate terms that favor small scale farmers. With your loan, Jane will generate enough income to comfortably repay the loan. The extra income will go to Jane's family expenses.

In the long run, Jane’s family will see an increase in their income courtesy of the lenders of this loan.
