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

A loan helped to buy another quality breed of dairy cow to satisfy the overwhelming demand for milk in her village and help a mother secure the future of her four children.

Catherine's story

Catherine is a mother of four children who is very happy to share her profile on this platform for the first time. She lives with her husband and four children in Chuka, a land of seemingly never ending beauty.

Because of her love for her children, she works very hard for their satisfaction. Thanks to practicing animal and crop farming, Catherine hopes for a bright future.

Each morning she wakes up to milk her cows. This is what she does best. She sells milk from her cows in the local market, and the income received is what she uses to educate her children.

However, the biggest challenge Catherine faces is satisfying the overwhelming demand for milk in her village. She is seeking a 40,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy another dairy cow of good quality. She believes that another cow will enable her to sell more milk, improve her living conditions, and secure the future of her children.

Catherine is very motivated because this loan will be the turning point for a bright future for her family. This loan will have a lasting impact in her heart.
