A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer to improve her tea crop farm to generate income to help her improve her family's quality of life.

Caroline's story

Caroline (a repeat Kiva borrower) is looking forward to your support in this month of love. She is a mother of three children and a mixed farmer living in Kericho, a town where the main economic activities include agricultural processing, particularly in horticulture and tea.

With this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality good fertilizer, which she will use to greatly improve her tea crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will assure her a bumper tea crop harvest and increased profits.

Caroline believes that through this loan she will be able to give her children a solid educational background.

Unlike local money lenders that charge exorbitant interest on loans, Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva have entered into a partnership that aims at improving the lives of small-holder farmers by providing them with loans and encouraging them to save. This loan will play a key role in lifting her out of poverty.

Make a $25 loan or more and push Caroline’s dream closer to reality.

This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals, farm inputs and farming equipment.
