Florence
HELLO LENDERS! Meet Florence, a very hardworking, honest and ever-smiling mother of four lovely children that she really treasures. She is 53 years of age and has been practicing farming for the past six years. She is one of the hardworking women in her village and she offers free advice to young farmers and extends extension services to other farmers in neighboring villages. Florence's primary source of income is milk and egg selling and through these, she has been able to earn an honest income. Florence hails from the Molo area of Kenya, a place blessed with “mother nature” and good conditions that favor agricultural activities.

Florence is a very aspiring woman who wants to protect the future of her children and grandchildren. Hence, she is putting extra efforts into farming so that she can make ends meet.

Florence is seeking funds to build a greenhouse on her piece of land and with the greenhouse, her crops will have controlled environmental conditions that are ideal for crops to grow healthy. With the loan, Florence will increase her supply of tomatoes and she will be assured of more income.

Being a mother in Africa is very challenging and accessing funds is so hard but with institutions such as Juhudi Kilimo and Kiva, Florence is assured of realizing her dream.

Florence has undergone training on how to save the income generated from the greenhouse and she is much disciplined with finances. She is sure that through the loan, she will have permanent life change.

Profits from the greenhouse will allow Florence to improve her living conditions and assure her grandchildren of a good and secure future.
