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

A loan helped a divorced mom to buy farm supplies, such as quality seeds and fertilizer, to improve her production.

Pauline's story

Pauline, a 35-year-old divorced mother, is an excellent example of a hard worker. She resides in Nyeri, the home town of some of the world's most beautiful sculptures.

Having grown up on a farm, Pauline is no stranger to hard work and she is ready to roll up her sleeves with the determination needed to make her farming journey a fruitful one! Thanks to her daily efforts, Pauline has managed to give her children a good start by providing them with a good-quality education.

Pauline has a farm where she grows crops and raises livestock. She also earns some income from a personal business. She never had a formal education and is content with the farming lifestyle. The Nyeri area is a favorable one for farming, so Pauline is seeking a KES 30,000 loan through Kiva's field partner Juhudi Kilimo to buy farm supplies such as fertilizer and seeds to enable her to grow more crops, reap maximum profits and increase her business.

Pauline is always working to improve her family’s living conditions. Her biggest dreams are to become independent, support her family by herself, secure her children’s future and to buy a home. Thank you.
