Theresia's story

Theresia is a hard working mother. She is a farmer in Thika, growing maize, raising poultry, and engaged in dairy farming. She produces milk and eggs for commercial purposes as opposed to many rural farmers who produce for subsistence. Theresia also grows maize for food and sales. These commercial activities place her in a better position to engage in other agricultural businesses, which she does. Her biggest challenges are the poor road network and the lack of market. Theresia requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo which she will use to construct a cow shed. The shed will help significantly in managing the animals’ health and hygiene. Theresia has been farming for over 10 years and has no plans to quit as she finds farming to be not only fulfilling, but also lucrative. The additional income will go to her children’s education.
