Caroline's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy in-demand cereals such as cow peas, lentils, rice, and maize to resell and make money to build a modern house.

Caroline's story

Meet Caroline (pictured outside her simple mud constructed house). She has an infectious smile that always brightens everybody's day. Caroline is a mother who is blessed with lovely children. She is from a remote village in Bungoma, Kenya.

She has defied the common thinking among most Kenyans that agriculture is only for the older generation. Her primary source of income is milk, and she 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.

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

Caroline 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 Caroline, 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.

Caroline 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 help her improve her business.

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