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

A loan helped to purchase modern farm inputs, such as certified seeds and organic fertilizers in order to improve the quality of her products.

Caroline's story

With her great drive and perseverance, Caroline is a successful mixed farmer and has been able to educate and support her six children. She is the proud owner of a small piece of land on which she has been practicing mixed farming for the past fifteen years.

Caroline grows various crops on her farm, such as maize, which is a staple food among majority of Kenyan families. She also keeps cows.
Over time, the fertility of her land has started to dwindle, and her maize yields are decreasing with each season. Her farmland has also been affected by weeds.

Caroline is currently requesting a loan from Juhudi Kilimo via Kiva lenders in order to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and high-quality seeds. Through this loan, she expects to increase her crop production, which will translate into an improved harvest and a higher income. Thus, this loan will change her living standards.

She is confident that if you invest in her business, this planting season will be a great year for her. She thanks you wholeheartedly for your help and hopes for your warm response, because she knows you always have her back.
