Catherine's story

Meet Catherine, a 56-year-old farmer from Subuiga. She is a single mother of two children who are both in school. Catherine is a member of the Mutunyi women’s group that is under the auspices of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Catherine is a very diligent woman who acknowledges the importance of timely planting, which ensures cash flow to her income, thus improving her living standards.

Catherine is challenged by the lack of quality seeds to grow on her farm, which can result in poor-quality crops. This loan will help her buy quality seeds and also help her educate her children.

Catherine appreciates you checking her Kiva loan request and hopes for your support.
