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

A loan helped an ever-smiling mom loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to grow more bananas.

Christine's story

Christine is a repeat borrower hoping for a prosperous 2021. She is a mother living in Meru, a town surrounded by prime agricultural lands that favor large-scale grain farming, dairy, and banana farming.

Christine is very hopeful that Kiva lenders will support her until she gets on the right path of success. The Meru area has good climatic conditions that favor banana crop farming. And that is why Christine is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to enable her to grow more bananas, reap maximum profits, and increase her business.

Being a smallholder farmer and accessing funds in Kenya, especially around her remote village, is very challenging, but Christine feels relieved knowing there are institutions such as Kiva that help enterprising women like her.

Through your loan, all her dreams and her resolutions for the 2021 will be fulfilled.
