Ruth's story

Ruth is 26 years old and lives in the Sirende, Eldoret, area of Kenya. She has a lovely family. The living conditions in the Sirende, Eldoret, area are tough because there is neither clean water nor electrical connections. For 10 years, her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and horticultural produce. Ruth’s biggest challenges are disease and a shortage of farm inputs. Farmers in the area lack capital to purchase farm inputs such as chemicals to prevent disease. Ruth made the decision to join Juhudi Kilimo in order to access loans that would help her improve her farming activities. The additional income from the expansion will go toward Ruth’s children’s education. With your loan, Ruth’s children will acquire a quality education that will act as a strong foundation for a bright future. Ruth has fully paid back her previous loan. This 2016, be inspired and support a Kenyan female smallholder farmer!
