Roseline's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, high-quality seeds and good fertilizer in order to improve and get a bumper harvest.

Roseline's story

Roseline (a 34-year-old mom of 6zix) is a woman who has only one thought in her mind, which is to work in order to move forward. She is a practical woman. She has no higher education or work experience, only her wits and her desire to succeed in life.

She is a very hardworking, progressive, and honest farmer from a very remote village in Chebiemit in the Kapsowar area of Kenya. This area is very fertile, with favorable weather patterns that support farming activities.

Roseline is happily married and the proud mother of a lovely family. Together they live on a small piece of land that she really treasures. Her primary sources of income are crops and milk. Therefore, she is seeking funds from Kiva lenders to buy farm inputs like good fertilizer and good-quality seeds. Through this loan, she will double her production, and this will translate into increased income. She then intends to save more money in the future so that she can develop her farming. This loan will help Roseline to realize her dream of getting out of poverty.

Lenders! If there is someone that you should invest in, then that person is Roseline. She will not let you down.
