Jenifer's story

Hello! Meet Jenifer, a hardworking, very honest and warmhearted farmer who hails from the Kerugoya area of Kenya, an area that has one of the best weather patterns on earth that favors farming. Jenifer is the proud mother of two lovely children that she really loves and adores and always protects. Jenifer’s upbringing was very challenging and because of this she promised herself that she would work hard and get out of the poverty situation. That is why she started farming 10 years ago and through farming she has been able to earn a decent income. Jenifer is the breadwinner in her family and this really pushes her to work hard so that her two children will have a bright future and also her parents will have a comfortable life.

Jenifer is seeking a loan to start horticulture farming so that she can use the excess space on her land and she dreams of buying more land and increasing her horticulture farming.

Accessing funds is very difficult for a woman in Africa but through institutions such as Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, Jenifer is optimistic that her dream will be realized and her life will completely change.

Through the income from horticulture farming, Jenifer will assure her children of a bright future and she will be able to pay tuition fees for her siblings who depend on her. Through your loan the promise of supporting small scale farmers will be achieved.
