Rodah
Hello world, meet Rodah! She is a mother of four who lives together with her children on a small piece of land in Eldoret, Kenya. On the farm, she keeps poultry and dairy cows and also grows maize. She makes a decent living selling milk, eggs and maize and she also engages in other small personal businesses. Rodah spent years trying to access formal financial services to no avail. She was referred to Juhudi by a friend who went through the same trouble. Since joining Juhudi, she has had access to a low interest rate loan without even having a collateral; this enabled her to have some assets in her name. Today, Rodah is before you seeking another loan to purchase a dairy cow. She has the room and resources on her farm to sustain more dairy animals. With more milk, Rodah will be able to generate enough income to comfortably repay the loan and meet her high monthly family-related expenses. This loan will go a long way in improving Rodah's family's standard of living. She wants her children to grow up healthy and wise.
