Mercy Kitale, Kenya / Farming A loan of $500 helps to buy fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Mercy's story

Hello lenders,

Meet this young farmer, Mercy. She farms a small plot of land in Kitale, a region where she has always enjoyed the regular rainfall patterns. Unlike other young women of her age, Mercy is innovative and enthusiastic. She is single and very motivated to become an independent woman. She grows maize and some few horticultural products.

Recently, she has been experiencing reduced output due to depletion of her soil nutrients, and her maize and horticultural profits are decreasing with each season. She is also complaining about the frequent weeds.

Mercy is currently requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to buy fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Mercy knows she will make a difference this season. Through this loan, Mercy expects to increase her horticulture crop production, which will translate into an improved harvest and a higher income. Your contribution will go a long way in changing the life of a young small holder.

This loan is special because: It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals and farming equipment. David Kiva staff
