Sammary's story

Sammary is 32 years old and has children. She will always do anything to prevent them from going to bed with hungry stomachs. She is from the Siongiroi area of Kenya. She never got the opportunity to advance her education and get a white collar job, but these realities did not kill her dream of wanting to succeed in life.

Sammary has been farming for the past five years. Through the years, she has gathered much experience, and all the farming techniques are at her fingertips. She practices mixed farming (dairy, animal, and crop farming). With her profits, she has managed to take care of her family's needs.

Sammary requested a loan from Juhudi Kilimo for 10,000 KES, which she will use to buy seeds to start horticulture farming. She wants to take advantage of various conditions such as favorable weather patterns, a good road network in her village, good soil, and a ready market for horticulture products to reap more profits. By the end of the first year, she hopes that she will not only be selling in the local market but also in international markets through the export of fruits and vegetables.

Juhudi Kilimo is partnering with Kiva and Kiva lenders to help hardworking women like Sammary turn their farming dreams into reality through training and loan financing.
