Pauline's story

Pauline is a 49-year old mother of three children who is very determined to succeed and always desires to give her a better life. The Kerugoya area is a favorable one for farming. In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic. The kind of inputs that are being used in the sector today are upgraded. On this note, there is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production. Pauline is seeking a 50,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs, such as certified seeds and high quality fertilizers, to improve her yields and generate more income to improve the quality of life for her family. Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging. Pauline feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her family’s living conditions, but her biggest dreams are to become independent and support her family by herself, secure her children’s future, and to buy a home.
