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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs, such as certified fertilizer, to enable this woman with a perfect credit history to improve her farm.

Carolyne's story

Carolyne, a 50-year-old mother of 3 school going children, believes this is her opportunity to move forward with her life and give her family a solid reputation. Thanks to her daily efforts, she's managed to give her family a good start.

Carolyne has a farm growing different crops in Eldoret, an area favorable for farming, and keeps a dairy cow. She also earns income from a personal business. She didn't have a formal secondary education and is content with farm life.

Carolyne is seeking a loan of 100,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) through Kiva field partner Juhudi Kilimo, which she will use to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer, to improve her farm. This will enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and expand her business.

Being a woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around Carolyne's village, is very challenging. Carolyne is relieved to know there are institutions like Kiva helping enterprising women like herself. She's always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Kindly lend to this hardworking mom with a perfect credit rating!
