Catherine's story

Catherine, a 46 year old mom of 4, makes every effort to succeed through hard work and determination. She works seven days a week trying to make ends meet. Her main source of income is derived from her dairy cows. Her animals are fed on fodder grown on her farm to boost their milk production.

Catherine sells the milk at the local market and uses the profits to provide for the basic needs of her family. She has been doing this for the past few years. Earning an income by selling her harvest is the part of farming that Catherine enjoys most. However, obtaining available labor is a major challenge for her. Before joining Juhudi Kilimo, Catherine could not access loans from banks because she is a woman and a small-holder farmer. After she joined Juhudi Kilimo, she learned about loan management and agribusiness. She also became familiar with Kiva.

Catherine is seeking a loan to purchase high-quality farm inputs to increase her productivity. This will boost her income so that she can pay school fees for her children.

Catherine waits for your kindness. She expresses her thanks in advance for taking the precious time to read her profile and hopes to obtain your help and support.
