A loan helped to buy farming inputs to improve her banana crop production and make more income to support her family.


Paulina's story

Paulina is 51 years old and lives in Kapcherop, an area with hilly scenery that is good for camping and hiking. She is a hard-working woman who has been farming dairy and banana-crop farming for the past many years. Through farming, she has made her life meaningful.

She is seeking a loan from Kiva lenders to buy farming inputs to improve her banana-crop production and make more income to support her family. The major impediment to the development of smallholder farms in Kenya is the lack of short-term credit facilities. Juhudi Kilimo, in partnership with Kiva, is working hard to support smallholder farmers in Kenya through financing, therefore guaranteeing their survival. As a woman who views Kiva lenders as the champions of hope to the world during this tough economic recession, Paulina looks forward to your warm support.
