Evangeline, a mother of two children aged 10 and 4, is a farmer in the area of Nkubu, Central Kenya where for 10 years she has been growing passion fruits, beans, and cabbages, selling to the middlemen within the local market. She laments the high cost of inputs, especially fertilizers and pesticides. She also trades in second-hand shoes and clothes for additional income.

Evangeline has requested a loan of 60,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimoso to buy dairy goats. She says dairy goats are a rich source of milk and have become popular in the area. She will use the income to educate her children and improve their overall standards of living.

Evangeline appreciates the loan services offered by Juhudi Kilimo.
