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

A loan helped a single mom to buy farm inputs, such as seeds and quality fertilizers, to improve her crop farming.

Carolyne's story

Speaking with Carolyne, a 29-year-old single mom and a borrower with a good credit history, it becomes obvious that she is a very hardworking, helpful woman. Everything she does is for her family's benefit and well-being. She lives in a humble home in the town of Eldoret.

She has been working in agriculture for the past few years. She makes money selling crops from her farm. She enjoys plowing her farm and watering her plants. Crop diseases pose a big challenge for her, as does poor productivity.

Carolyne is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs. With the loan, she plans to buy good-quality seeds and fertilizer, which will help increase soil fertility and productivity f her farm. Increased productivity will allow her to improve her quality of life and living standards. Through training from Juhudi Kilimo, she has learned about the culture of saving, and she plans to use the increased income to improve her farming.

This loan will go a long way toward changing the lives of Carolyne and her family. Like Carolyne, thousands of women smallholder farmers are waiting for your help.

Take heart, make a loan.
