Karen's story

Karen is a 46-year-old mother with two children. She lives in Bomet, a town that hosts a number of elite athletes in Kenya. Karen is a resourceful woman who is excellent proof that hard work and discipline are the key ingredients to success. She supports her family through mixed farming, work that she has been practicing for the past 20 years.

Karen is seeking a loan to buy farming inputs that she plans to use to improve her production and make more income to support her family during this tough global economic recession. The Kiva lenders have spearheaded the rural growth in Kenya by supporting smallholder farmers in turning their dreams into reality. With this loan, Karen will make the year 2021 colorful for her family.
