Caroline's story

Caroline is a 26-year-old mom of 1 and is a caring mom from the Meru area, which is a luxuriant crop and dairy region. Caroline is very passionate and hardworking, and is eager to learn and take on new challenges. These qualities have propelled her into becoming one of the most respected farmers in her village.

Caroline sells crops produced on her farm. She also engages in a personal business to make ends meet. This level of success has been fueled by her perseverance, commitment, and enthusiasm, among other things.

Access to modern, quality seeds and fertilizer is the key ingredient to agricultural success. However, in Kenya, a developing and third-world country, the government's allocation of fertilizer and seed is way below the needs of farmers. Ever since Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, ventured into the affairs of smallholder farmers in Kenya, there has been a significant improvement in input availability. The farmers can attest to this improvement.

Caroline is requesting a loan to use in transporting her farm produce to the market. Your loan will enable her to timely make the products available to the market.

Caroline hopes to generate more income to repay the loan debt and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve the conditions of her household.
