Mary has requested a loan of 50,000 KES from Juhudi Kilimo to buy a water pump and cereal seeds. She says this will boost her horticultural farming and cereals production which will in turn improve her retail business. She adds that the income will improve her family's living standards but notes that fluctuation in milk prices is one of the major challenges in the farming business.
