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

A loan helped to buy an additional dairy cow to improve her milk-vending business so she can generate more profits to support her family.

Caroline's story

Meet Caroline (33 years old), a repeat Kiva borrower who is a mother of three children. Caroline is a hardworking, small-scale farmer who is not daunted by the difficult situations she has had to face in her lifetime.

Caroline lives in Thika, a town where the main economic activities include agricultural processing, particularly in cereals and pineapples. This area has good rainfall patterns, and this favors farmers like her. Most people who live in this area are smallholder farmers.

Caroline practices poultry, dairy, and crop farming—work she has practiced for many years. She loves dairy farming the most. Her greatest challenge is a lack of enough feed for her livestock. Caroline chose Juhudi Kilimo after realizing that they finance farmers to help obtain important assets for their farms. She is borrowing to buy another dairy cow to help improve her milk-vending business.

She believes in the slogan "unity is strength," which is why she decided to join Juhudi Kilimo. During the Juhudi Kilimo training, she learned how to develop a savings culture. This loan will be of benefit to her family in that they will have more milk for consumption and sale, and their living standards will improve.

Be inspired and lend to this zealous woman!
