Catherine's story

Catherine, 48, has joined Kiva because she dreams of success for her family. As a rural mother, Catherine has been through many adversities, but she always triumphs. Her confidence in the knowledge that she gathered when she was young enabled her to take on farming, and she commands a lot of respect from other farmers in her village. She does crop and dairy farming.

In Kenya, agriculture is one of the most competitive industries due to high operating costs, including the cost of land acquisition and inputs, which have skyrocketed. Farmers have been forced to borrow from financial institutions that impose very complicated procedures for loans. Some farmers, especially women, end up in hopelessness and despondency.

Catherine is requesting a loan to purchase farming inputs, such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to improve her farm yield. She will generate more income to repay the loan and improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to improve her house.
