Maurine
Meet 24-year-old young and energetic Maurine who lives in Kitale and has been farming for one year, her primary income source being a variety of crops. What has kept her going for the past one year in farming is making profits and making money that will sustain her family. Her greatest challenge is during dry seasons, where there are low returns, pests, diseases and lack of supplies during farming in some seasons.

Maurine chose Juhudi Kilimo because they understand the needs of small scale farmers, and she wants to benefit as a small scale farmer and be able to expand her farming activities. During the training, she learnt how to invest in poultry and dairy farming. She says that through this loan, she will be able to provide basic necessities and also provide a good education for her child.
