Bungoma, Bungoma, Kenya / Agriculture

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

A loan helped to buy a motorbike for the timely delivery of her perishable products to the market, so that she can fetch higher profits.

Polyne's story

Polyne is a 27-year-old mother of two children living in Bungoma, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands, which favor large-scale grain farming, dairy and horticultural farming. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who injects passion and determination into her work.

Polyne is from a remote village with poor roads, and transporting her produce to the market has been a challenge. She has suffered many losses of perishable products which require a timely delivery to the market. This loan will help her to achieve her dream and reach her goals.

Accessing a financial solution for women in Kenya is an uphill battle, but Polyne feels relieved to know that there are institutions, such as Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva, that help women to gain respect. Polyne is a woman who is making a change for herself and for others in the community, because she intends to employ someone to ride the motorbike and help with farm work. Polyne will use the loan to improve her living conditions and assure that her children can have a secure future. Support her as the world prepares to celebrate women.
