Margaret
Her smile exudes optimism as she ventures into goat farming. Margaret is not your ordinary small-holder dairy farmer, as evidenced by her carefully conceived business plan.

Margaret, a mother of 3, is embarking on a journey to improve her family’s standard of living by engaging in mixed farming. She received training from Juhudi Kilimo, located in her home town of Kerugoya, Kenya.

She has farmed for10 years and has earned an income selling her produce and engaging in other small businesses.

Margaret seeks a loan to purchase goats. These goats will provide milk and meat that will be sold. The training she received from Juhudi focused on wealth-creation through income generating assets and basic financial management skills. The money she earns from selling milk and meat will be enough to repay the loan and save money.

Her biggest challenge is raising capital and marketing the farm products. With your funding, Margaret will purchase the goats and use Juhudi Kilimo's extension resources to help with the marketing challenges. The extra income will meet the high farming costs that place heavy burdens on smallholder farmers.

Her dream is for her family to enjoy financial independence.
