Nancy
Hello world! Meet Nancy, 29 years of age and a small-scale farmer from Kericho, a rural town in Kenya that is famous for its high-quality tea. It is also home to some of the world’s best long-distance runners, many of whom have won gold medals in international events. Nancy is a young mother of one child and has been practising mixed farming for the past four years. Her primary sources of income are milk, eggs, tea and other crops, and some personal business.

Nancy passionately loves farming, but dairy farming is close to her heart and looking after her dairy cows makes her a very proud farmer. Although Nancy has made profits through farming, she has been experiencing losses because of ineffective farming techniques. That is why she is kindly requesting a loan to buy farm inputs.

Through the loan, she will be able to buy good-quality and high-grade seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides to be used in her farm. This will assure her of immediate profits because the production level will go up, which will generate better profits.

Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques and inputs, and Nancy is eager to access them. Through increased profits, she will be able to realize her dream of improving her living conditions and seeing her business expand in leaps and bounds.

Nancy is very disciplined with finances and has gone through Juhudi Kilimo training. She is sure to accumulate more income and be able to fully pay back the loan.
