Caroline'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 quality certified seeds and fertilizer, to improve her harvest and support her family.

Caroline's story

A positive attitude and confidence are key qualities that propel Caroline in her day-to-day farming activities. She is a smallholder farmer who has combined her efforts, talents, insights, enthusiasm and inspiration to work together.

She is a 27-year-old ever-smiling mom (pictured with her child above) and is full of dreams and aspirations for her life. She resides in a remote village in the lush hills of Nandi Hills, Kenya.

Caroline is a dairy and crop farmer, who injects passion and enthusiasm into her work. The biggest problem that farmers from her village face is the huge deficit in access to agricultural inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, which means that their yields and incomes are far below what they could be.

Juhudi Kilimo has partnered with Kiva to provide financial services to smallholders around Kenya. Through these financial services, farmers from Nandi Hills, like Caroline, can now buy productive assets and important agricultural inputs for use on their farms.

Caroline is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs, such as quality certified seeds and fertilizer. Her loan will enable her to improve production through the use of quality farm inputs. This intervention will help Caroline fill the increasing demand for food in the market and, in the process, generate more income to repay her loan debt and improve the quality of life for her family.
