Carolyne's story

Hello, special people!

Carolyne feels happy to be part of Kiva. She is a woman who lives in the countryside. As a mother, she truly adores her family, for whom she has gone through many adversities in her life.

She lives in Kitale, an area endowed with natural streams. Carolyne grows crops and raises dairy cows on her farm. She produces milk for sale, as opposed to many rural farmers who produce for subsistence. Carolyne also grows maize for personal consumption and to sell. These commercial activities place her in a position to also engage in other agricultural businesses.

Carolyne dreams that farming will be her way to pull out of poverty. She is a visionary who is keen to keep on progressing. In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic. Therefore, the inputs used in the sector today must be upgraded to ensure effective production.

Currently, Carolyne is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs such as certified seeds and nutrient-rich fertilizer to improve her farm and, by extension, her family's quality of life. Through this action, she will be able to improve the quality of her farm products and attract more buyers, which will lead to more profit.
