Poline's story

Meet Poline (pictured in her house), a young farmer with an infectious smile. She is from a remote village in Nkubu, Kenya. She has defied the common thinking among most Kenyans that agriculture is only for the older generation.

Poline is happily married and, together with her husband, they are blessed with lovely children. Her primary source of income is milk, and she also plants different varieties of food crops. She also engages in a personal business and has been able to earn a handsome profit from the venture.

Poline practices agriculture with a difference, employing youthful energy, hard work, and knowledge from the many agricultural training seminars she has had with Juhudi Kilimo.

Poline is seeking a loan to buy cereals so that she can increase her profits and satisfy the existing demand. Accessing funds has been a challenge for Poline, but she now feels relieved because Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva lenders to help hardworking women farmers like herself turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.

Poline believes that this loan will benefit her greatly and that she will be able to satisfy the demand for cereals. She also believes that the extra income she earns will enable a change in her life and increase her business.

Increased profits will allow Poline to repay this loan and provide a secure future for her school-going children.
