Loice is a 55-year-old widowed mother of six children ranging in age between 17-36 years old. Two of her children are still attending school.

She is a farmer from Kisii town in Western Kenya where she has been farming for 33 years. Her main products are maize, beans, millet, bananas and vegetables which she sells to the local market and other retail businesses. She solely relies on the income from farming to meet the family's expenses. Her major challenge is lack of enough capital for expansion and high input prices during planting season.

She recently completed her previous loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 35,000 KES. She has requested this loan for 60,000 KES to expand her cereals and banana business. The income from this loan will enable her to educate her children and provide for her family.

She expects to stock cereals on large scale in five years time.
