Catherine's story

Smallholder women farmers are often marginalized in Kenya, but Catherine (pictured above) is not lying low and wants to fight for a brighter future. She is very hardworking and a high-flier.

Catherine hails from a remote village in the Machakos area of Kenya. This area has tough living conditions, and to survive, she must have a tough skin. Catherine has defied all the odds and has chosen to work hard to meet the needs of her loving family. As the family's only breadwinner, Catherine works on her farm, growing different crops and rearing dairy cows.

Currently, Catherine is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs such as high-quality seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizers to improve her production and generate more profit to pay for her family expenses. To others, it might seem like a mere loan, but to Catherine, this loan is the biggest opportunity she will have this season to change her life.
