A loan helped to buy a motorbike which will be used to transport her farm produce to a nearby market.


Catherine's story

Meet Catherine (a repeat Kiva borrower), a woman who would not let anything destroy her dreams. She is 44 years old and has two children. Catherine has lives in Chuka, a remote area located on a gentle plain before the ascent into the central highlands of Kenya. Catherine has farmed for the past twenty years.

Juhudi Kilimo’s partnership with Kiva is an effective tool for reducing poverty in Kenya and especially among women, being the central actors in the rural areas.

Catherine is seeking this loan to buy a motorbike which will be used to transport her farm produce to a nearby market. Supporting her with a loan will be key in facing the financial crisis that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.


This loan is special because:

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