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

A loan helped to buy hybrid seeds and expand her garden farming activities to satisfy the ready market for horticulture products and eventually improve her living conditions.

Caroline's story

Hello, lenders. Meet Caroline, a 34-year-old farmer from a remote village situated in the Chuka province of Kenya. The living conditions in this area are tough because there is neither clean water from the local authority nor electrical connection.

For 12 years, Caroline's primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and garden produce. Caroline's biggest challenges are disease and a shortage of farm inputs. Farmers in the area lack capital to purchase farm inputs such as chemicals to prevent these diseases. Caroline made the decision to join Juhudi Kilimo in order to access loans that would help her improve her farming activities. She is requesting a loan to buy hybrid seeds and expand her horticulture farm.

The additional income from the expansion will go to Caroline's children's education. With your loan, Caroline’s children will acquire a quality education that will act as a strong foundation for a bright future.

This year 2018, be inspired and support a Kenyan woman smallholder farmer!
