Caroline's story

Over time, Caroline has been persevering to reach her goal of improving her living conditions and having a better life. She is a loving and unassuming woman who works tirelessly for the welfare of her family. Caroline hails from the Eldoret area of Kenya, near the famous Rift valley escarpment of Kenya. She has been farming for the past five years. Through those years, she has gathered much experience and is considered among the best farmers in her village. Caroline practices mixed farming. Her primary sources of income are milk, eggs, crops and some small business ventures that help her to make ends meet. She is very passionate about farming and loves cultivating her farm. That is why, every day, she wakes up very early to go to her farm to plow. Caroline has always wanted to increase her income by buying seeds to plant so that once the crops are ready for harvest, she can sell them. That is why she is seeking this loan. Kenya's Eldoret area, one of the county's populated regions, has a high demand for crop produce. This means that Caroline could increase her profits and satisfy the demand that is there. Accessing funds has been a challenge for Caroline, but she now feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva lenders to help hard-working women farmers like her turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing. Caroline’s greatest dream is to see her family happy, making progress and avoiding deprivation.
