Caudesia'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 fertilizer to enable a mother with a good credit history to grow more crops and help create hope for her this season.

Caudesia's story

Dear Kiva community,
Caudesia (a 40-year-old mom of 2 school-going children) has always dreamed of a better life for her family. She is living proof that hard work yields success, thanks to the daily work that this mother has injected in her mixed farm for many years.

Caudesia has a farm where she grows corn and different crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business. The Nyeri area is a favorable one for farming, so she is seeking a 15,000 KES loan through Kiva's field partner, Juhudi Kilimo, to buy farm inputs such as fertilizers to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits, and expand her business.

Being a poor woman and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging, but Caudesia feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like herself. She is always working to improve her children’s living conditions, but her biggest dream is to become independent and to secure her children’s future.

She is a borrower who has a good credit history and is worth supporting.
