Susan
Susan is a farmer and a mother of three children living in Nyamira, a very rich banana growing area. She has practiced farming for six years; she produces and sells milk, eggs, and bananas. She also rears rabbits, and sells them in the local market. Her biggest challenge in farming is a lack of sufficient funds.

Susan chose Juhudi Kilimo for this loan to fund her rabbit project because their loans are at a low interest rate, and also because Juhudi supports small scale farmers.

This loan will enable her to purchase more rabbits to sell, and then it will bring in more income and thus help her take care of her children's fees and improve her family's living standards.
