Martha
Meet Marta, a well-established farmer, in the Chuka area of Eastern Kenya. She is married and has four school-aged children. She has a 1/2-acre of land, which produces vegetables, coffee, bananas, milk, and eggs. These are her main source of income. Her biggest challenges are marketing and shortage of rain.

Martha chose Juhudi Kilimo because they help small-scale farmers to grow economically, by giving them loans for their projects. During the training, she learned that mfis do help low income earners to access funds, to uplift their living standards. After she gets the farm inputs, her output will increase, and hence, she will earn more income. This will improve their living standards
