Christine's story

Christine is a 28-year-old single mother who lives in Chuka, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. She is a mixed dairy and crop farmer who has farmed for the past five years, enabling her to support her family. Thanks to her hard work and determination, Christine has been able to support her family.

Christine is seeking this loan to buy farming inputs to improve her production and make more income to support her family. Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya and especially among women, who are central actors in the rural areas.

Christine is hopeful that lenders will respond positively to her loan request. Empowering a woman is a very important tool to foster development this International Women’s Day season.
