Stephen
Stephen is a 36-year-old father of 1. His farm is located in Kenya’s Rift Valley Province. For the last 3 years, he has sold milk and maize produced on his farm at a local market located near his home.

Life has not been an easy ride for Stephen. However, he manages to overcome every challenge that tries to knock him down. When the income from his farm was not enough to take good care of his family, he started engaging in other personal businesses to generate more income.

Stephen seeks a loan via Juhudi Kilimo to venture into horticulture. Introducing modern techniques and practices into his farm is Stephen’s perceived path out of poverty.

Through your loan, Stephen and his family will work very hard to take good care of their investment in horticulture, in which they put their hopes for a better life.

Stephen became a member of Ebenezer Self-Help Group after sensitization of group-based security loans. Through the group, Stephen received training on how he could improve his agri-business and financial status.
